Distillery

 

 

Oban Distillery has only two pot stills, making it one of the smallest in Scotland, producing a whisky that has been described as having a 'West Highland' flavor that falls between the dry, smoky style of the Scottish islands and the lighter, sweeter malts of the Highlands.

 

House Style: Medium, with fresh peat and a whiff of the sea.

Tasting Notes

Taster: Paul Pacult

Nose: Curious savory first aroma that highlights cents of new leather, grilled meat, tomato paste, and black pepper.

 

Palate: Oily butter texture and flavor explosion of tomato, black pepper, truffle, mushroom, and light toffee.

 

Finish: Slightly salty, but with a fudge-like uplift that ends the experience with style and grace.

 

Comment: A vastly underappreciated distillery. Love it.
