Oban Distillery, Stafford Street, Oban, Argyll, Highland, Scotland
Taster   Doug McIvor
Nose: Succulent honeyed traits with a briney background.
Palate: Rich nutty, malty and full-bodied with dark chocolate and spice emerging.
Finish: Very lingering, chocolatey and warming. With a late peaty finesse.
Comment: Much enhanced Oban. Perfect with after coffee and brazils.
9.5
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fragrant. Edible seaweed, sweetish, restrained fruit. Aroma of white, uncut peaches.
Palate: Smooth, scenty. Developing notes of tobacco.
Finish: Sitting in a leather armchair, reading Masefield, before a log fire, listening to the tide with a whiff of brine under the weather-warped door.
Comment: Demonstrably an evocative whisky. Salty and winey, but neither as overt as in the comparable Glenmorangie Fino.
