    A successful finish, a good highlander!
    • Nose
      maritime, salty, apples, grapes, minimal smoke;
    • Taste
      first fruity, ripe grapes, dried fruit, then dry spice, nuts, oak, salty aromas, very little smoke, slightly oily, complex;
    • Finish
      medium to long, spicy, salty, slightly bitter;

    oban little bay VS oban distillers edition 2000-2015. let both sit for a few minutes in a glencairn before tasting both next to each other. the little bay, unfortunately, lacks of complexity. it somehow does not know what it is, neither round nor edgy. the nose is nice but the taste and finish disappoint truly. the 14y standard bottling is a much better deal than the little bay.

    on the other hand, the distillers edition shows definitely more what oban can offer. although i had better distiller editions than this one i think, i enjoyed it truly. still, i would not buy neither of those. if you like this style of whisky, i can highly recommend arran, where you get much more for your money.

      in comparison the sherry nuttiness is very strong on this one. the bready notes hide a bit behind the maritime notes, which are also hidden behind the sherry influence. moncheri. after a while the fruity part comes through. both candidates show noses which i do enjoy.

      nice mouthfeel, could have some more richness but still shows many layers of taste. way more complex than the little bay i must say. the salty fizziness combined with some fresh sherry notes which are combined nicely, not overwhelming or so. like it.

      rather short. some gingery notes with oak. bit sharp at the very end but decent. after a few seconds some rubbery notes come thorugh.

    I generally want a bit more smoke than this offers, at least that I was able to detect at this particular time and point in the bottle after however long it had been open for.

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nice Oban, with some nice mixture of fruty and sweet notes together with saltiness. Could have been a little higher on Abv though.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Salty, a cooling barbecue, some smoke, prunes, tobacco, alcohol pretty much present.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Pretty strong, some pepper, salty, honey, some chocolate and prunes. Later on much softer, yet not watery or thin.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Still pretty strong, pepper, tobacco, licorice, middle long. Still salty as well.
