The 1996 vintage entry for Oban in Diageo's Distillers Edition range, finished in Montilla fortified wine casks for more depth and a kick of spice.

Oban 1996 Reviews

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: Outstanding. Fruity and pungent; sea salt with crushed grapes, orange zest and hints of smoke. Massively complex.

    Palate: Most explosive Oban ever. Soft malt then wave upon wave of delicate yet rich fruit notes on a tide of brine.

    Finish: Sweetened Jamaican coffee and oak, with an attractive malt-biscuit effect as it dies down.
