“The founders of Oban distillery were entrepreneurs who imported and exported goods for which they could sense a demand. They would have approved of the Spanish influence brought to bear in this secondary cask finish. Deep gold in appearance. Sweeter than usual on the palate, rich fruit flavors are nonetheless complemented by a typical briny character. The finish is long with the influence of Montilla Fino cask-wood.” – Malts.com

Tasting notes

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.

-Michael Jackson
