Oban Distillers Edition (Distilled 2003 | Bottled in 2017)

We didn’t purchase this bottle, we commandeered it from a friend. Don’t worry, they know we took it and now, we get to enjoy this deliciousness. 

The Oban distillery is in the town of Oban, nestled on the West Coast of Scotland and looks out to the Scottish Isles. You can say this expression was influenced by the Isles across the Firth of Lorn as there’s a gentle peatiness that tickles the back of your throat.

Nose: smoke, salt, and oranges 

Palate: fruit, cinnamon, and salt

Finish: lightly sweet and spiced 

Cask: Montilla Fino Sherry Cask

ABV: 43%

This whisky is smooth, rich, and slightly sweet. It has the perfect amount of peat that even a non-peat lover would enjoy. It’s a complex whisky that is sophisticated and easy to drink. I’m extremely happy this is now on our shelf. I love the taste and how distinct it is from the 14-year Oban. It’s a hit for me.

Cheers!
