70cl / 58% ABV

Oban bottle
oban bottle and box

Inspired by the merging of rhythms in the beating heart of calypso, our Malt Master finished this lively Oban expression in Caribbean Pot Still rum casks. The vibrant combination evokes unexpected tropical notes of sugar cane and mango, which build on Oban’s own clever fusion of the Highland and Island styles. A glint of gold announces the summer sun while the fresh aroma of a sea breeze, backed by notes of citrus and enhanced by hints of tropical fruit and a dry spiciness, quickly brings the carnival closer.

Tasting Notes

Product Appearance iconIcon to highlight the product tasting note appearance section


Bright, pale sunlight.

Product Nose IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note nose section


A mild and fresh nose overall, rich in distillery character. The top notes are fresh and faintly maritime, suggesting a sea breeze, seaweed, warm dunes, and a hint of iodine; they are backed by lemon citrus and enhanced by sweet-spirited tropical traces of sugar cane and mango learned from the rum finishing casks.

Product Palate IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note palate section


An exceptionally smooth mouthfeel introduces a fruity and citrus sweet, lightly salty taste, again true to the distillery character, balanced here by an insistent yet never overpowering spiciness. A dash of water rounds softens and sweetens, bringing up the oil-smooth citrus character.

Product Finish IconIcon to highlight the product tasting note finish section


Quite short, finishing spicy and smoothly mouth cooling. A light, lingering, sweet aftertaste becomes more profound and longer if water is added.
