    • Nose
      It starts with some harsh notes like dark chocolate, sea-salt and sea-air. There is also a great note of wet sand. It turns a bit fruity and sweet with notes of lemon and apples. Followed by tones of boiled sweets and a tiny hint of smoke.
    • Taste
      A bit sweeter, but also with some harsh notes. Firstly I taste vanilla, complemented by apples and lemon again. Harsh notes like sea-salt, some earth and a little pepper. At the end I taste dry peanuts and dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium-long. With vanilla, apples and a wee bit of honey.

    In my opinion, the whisky is quite good with a pleasant taste and a well-finished (nice, warming) finish.
    However, I expected something more from Oban, so my assessment may be inadequate and unfair. I should (this is what I think I should test this whisky in the "dark", then not knowing what I drink, I would be perhaps more gracious in my assessment.
    I think I will come back to it later and the assessment may be quite different.

  7. holborndrinker scored this whisky 79 points Connoisseur

    Cough mixture - ideal in a hot toddy, although Beechams would be much cheaper.
    • Nose
      Nothing leaps out at me - some earth and herbal notes.
    • Taste
      Blimey - massive hit of honey - like licking a hive (a bee's home, rather than a hairdo, which would be weird).
    • Finish
      The honey keeps on going.
