Oban 2022 (Distillers Edition Collection) Single Malt Whiskey
Alcohol concentration: 43%
Oban's delicate ocean flavors are complemented by finishing in American oak barrels previously matured with Montilla fino. It's a dry wine, a bit like fino sherry, but made from Pedro Ximenez grapes from Montilla, next door to Jerez. So while the wine is extremely dry, it is more full-bodied than sherry. This is a cask rarely used in Scotland and gives this Oban an unusual seasoning.
Nose: A touch of sea surf, some gooseberry and white peach, and spice from toasted oak.
Palate: Subtle sweetness, creamy grains, more fruit, a drizzle of salted caramel and some peppery spice.
