Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% Clean and balanced.
Oban 14 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 Classic, gentle and pleasing. A consensual malt. Good match with salmon and light seafood dishes.
Oban 18 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 7 Harmonious as a water colour. A full display of soft flavours. A lovely springtime whisky to enjoy with red fruit.
Oban 20 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 57.90% 8 The nose is very distinguished and floaty. The palate is a bit too assertive because of the high strength. Requires oxygenation and water.
Oban Classic Malts Distillers Edition 1992
- Scotland - 43.00% 8 An appetizing dram like a dried fruit cake. Rich and malty. A drop of water will be enough to cheer it up. More knocks it down.
Oban Distillers Edition 1993 Montilla Fino
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% This works best for me. The distillery character has been retained,given a little tweak and the result is excellent.
Oban Distillers Edition, Montilla
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00% 8 Demonstrably an evocative whisky. Salty and winey, but neither as overt as in the comparable Glenmorangie Fino.
Oban Limited Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.20% 7 Good presence and a sumptuous palate.
