Oban distillery was small and has only 2 stills which lead to Diageo announcing the closure in 1968 but the decision was reversed with the building of the present stillhouse in 1972. In 1979, Oban became an early player in what was the new single malt category with the launch of a 12-year-old expression. Oban 14 Years is a Highland single malt Scotch whisky that was first launched in 1989 to replace the Oban 12 Years when Oban joined the Classic Malts Selection.
