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
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.
