Some bottles need little introduction. The distillery and age pretty much say it all. This 2016 vintage Distiller Edition from Oban is just that, a gem that can be purchased with certainty, a bottle that appeals to all real whisky lovers. Distilled all the way back in 2001, and finished in Montilla Fino wine casks, it has a smoky palette infused with berries, with a toasty, subtle smoke finish.
Flavour Profile: Nose
Delicate notes of chocolate and grape. Elements of dried peels, almond & soft malt all emerge in a wondrous sweet & smiling character.
Flavour Profile: Palate
The palate delivers an expected creamy & buttery experience dotted with notes of dark chocolate, spiced fruit & sea salt caramel.
Flavour Profile: Finish
The finish is steady, metered by nut based flavours and a mild fruit spice.
