Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    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.

    Sweet and woody, love the wine scent from the casks! I like it! But a little costly

    Eh, just so so. Tastes kinda like your average run of the mill scotch. Nothing distinct. You're much better with the 12 year where the brine really shines through.

    Sweet and sharp -- not nearly as good as the wonderful Oban 14.
