Oban 2022 (Distillers Edition Collection) Single Malt Whisky
Alcohol concentration: 43%
The delicate maritime flavours of Oban are complemented here by a finishing in American oak casks that previously held Montilla fino. This is a dry wine, a bit like a fino sherry, but made with Pedro Ximenez grape in Montilla, the region next door to Jerez. So while this is bone dry, it’s also more full-bodied than a sherry. It’s a cask that’s very rarely used in Scotland and adds an unusual seasoning to this Oban.
Nose: Light sea spray, with some gooseberry and white peach, along with toasty oak spice.
Palate: Subtle sweetness, with creamy grain, more fruit, drizzles of salted caramel, and some peppery spice.
