Oban Distillers Edition 2013
Importers and entrepreneurs, the founders of Oban distillery would have approved of the Spanish influence brought to bear with this edition’s second maturation in Montilla Fino cask wood finish. Typically a 14 year old maturation (Oban 14) the Distillery Edition gives an extra year being distilled in 1998 and bottled in 2013.
Nose: Fruity and pungent; sea salt with crushed grapes, orange zest and hints of smoke. Massively complex.
Taste: Soft malt then wave upon wave of delicate yet rich fruit notes on a tide of brine.
Finish: Sweetened Jamaican coffee and oak, with an attractive malt-biscuit effect as it dies down.
