Review by Oban

« This review is also available in Dutch »
Colour

Olive gold

Nose

Rich sweetness and fruits - oranges, lemons and pears, with sea-salt and peaty smokiness.

Palate

Mouth-filling late autumn fruits - dried figs and honey-sweet spices; followed by a smoky malty dryness.

Finish

Long, smooth-sweet finish with oak-wood, dryness and a grain of salt.

Conclusion

A combination of light smoke, medium richness and appetising spice.

Note

A bustling seaside resort has grown up around Oban distillery in the two centuries since it set up home in a fishing village. The West Highland single malt is still produced in the same unhurried, traditional fashion.
