Oban Little Bay is married in the smallest casks available at the distillery, 200-litre ex-bourbon barrels. This has resulted in a rich whisky with notes of stone fruit, spice and honey.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Clean, bright fruit, with aromas of peach, orange peel and a touch of red berries. Some pleasing oatmeal-biscuit notes, too, along with honey and cherry.

    Palate: Fuller on the palate, with cinnamon and clove mingling with rich, honeyed fruit – apricot, apple and orange – and brioche. A sprinkling of freshly cracked black pepper perks up the palate, too, along with a hint of barrel char.

    Finish: The citrus fruit and spices fade in equal proportion.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Appearance: Rich antique gold.

    Nose: Oily, waxy and nutty, balanced by ripe orchard fruits. Notes of almond fruit cake on denser Christmas pudding, with cereal and orange behind.

    Body: Medium to rich. Good viscosity.

    Palate: The comforting chewiness of rich fruit-bread, hints of orange zest and clove, growing drier, still minty, with crisp green apple.

    Finish: In a word, long. Quite syrupy at first, then drying, with elegant coating tannins rich in dark chocolate character.

    Oban nailed this NAS whisky. Fruity Nutty and Spicy yet mellow without the young whisky varnish flavor that haunts many NAS Scotches. My local store has it on sale for $35! Going to buy 10 more at that price!

    Fuller flavour than Oban 14. Fruit flavour at the start giving way to an earthy finish

    A full, rich, complex character that still manages to reflect the the simplicity of it'a bay side home. First experienced at the distillery, beneath the cliffs, a block from the bay - it perfectly captures the spirit of the town: independent and uncompromising, yet mellow. As warm as the people and as satisfying.
