As our legend goes, a vivid blaze of light grew against the ink-black sky above Oban, driven by a celestial being. One of the oldest and smallest distilleries in Scotland, in 1794 Oban rose, bringing an electric vibrancy to the quiet surroundings. Small as it may be, its mythical nature has been written in the stars for centuries. Maturation in refill and new American Oak, then double maturation in ex- Sherry & Amontillado seasoned casks, brings a mild nose with maritime salt and sea air. The creamy texture introduces a taste rich in sweet hints of wine- poached spiced plum, balanced by vibrant salt and spice, before finishing as chilli pepper. Rich, sticky sweetness sparkles through light smoke and salt, in an Oban of super-natural character.

Tasting Notes

Product Appearance iconIcon to highlight the product tasting note appearance section

Appearance

Pale, ethereal gold.

Product Body IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note body section

Body

Medium.

Product Nose IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note nose section

Nose

Gentle in feel, with no prickle. The top notes are faint at first yet grow easier to make out, studded with maritime hints of salt crystal, edible seaweed, and ozone-fresh sea air. As the senses adjust a very faint smokiness appears, infused with mere suggestions of lint and light olive oil, and a light note of lemon citrus fruit.

Product Palate IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note palate section

Palate

The texture is soft and creamy-smooth, while the taste shines brightly with wine-fruit notes that carry hints of sweet violet and spiced plum. The fruit is balanced by a lively spiciness first met as saltiness mid- palate, then in a blazing dash of chili pepper. A little water softens the taste, taming the spiciness without altering the balance overall.

Product Finish IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note finish section

Finish

Quite long and surprisingly peppery, leaving a smooth memory of chili pepper in the maritime aftertaste.
