from the Producer
- Nose: Fruity and pungent, yet it is the coastal sea-breeze effect which really captures the imagination. Oban often has a salty tinge to its character, here accentuated with crushed fresh grape juice, orange zest and a hint of smoke adding to the massive complexity. This is outstanding.
- Palate: The most explosive Oban ever. Starts with soft malt, then wave upon wave of delicate yet rich fruit notes pounds the tastebuds. They are carried in on a tide of brine, squaring impressively with the chewy malt.
- Finish: Not so long as the big start on the palate might suggest, but lots of slightly sweetened (with Demerara sugar) Jamaican coffee and oak to start, leaving an attractive malt-biscuit effect as it dies down.
