Oban distillery was founded in 1793 by John and Hugh Stevenson. The buildings are situated in the middle of the bustling seaside town of Oban on the west coast of Scotland. The distillery is in a great location and attracts a large number of visitors each year. Changing hands numerous times it is now currently owned by whisky industry giant’s Diageo. All the whisky produced is used for releasing single malt with none for blending. The distillery has long fermentation times with six mashes per week giving the final whisky a fruity style. Quite unusually a stainless steel worm tub is used as part of the production method. The brand is very popular and in the core range there’s the 14 year old Little Bay and Distiller’s Edition fino sherry finish. There are various limited editions and Oban whisky is also available as part of the owners yearly Special Releases.

Official Tasting Notes

Nose: Gentle in feel, with no prickle. The top notes are faint at first yet grow easier to make out, studded with maritime hints of salt crystal, edible seaweed, and ozone-fresh sea air. As the senses adjust a very faint smokiness appears, infused with mere suggestions of lint and light olive oil, and a light note of lemon citrus fruit.

Palate: The texture is soft and creamy-smooth, while the taste shines brightly with wine-fruit notes that carry hints of sweet violet and spiced plum. The fruit is balanced by a lively spiciness first met as saltiness midpalate, then in a blazing dash of chili pepper. A little water softens the taste, taming the spiciness without altering the balance overall.

Finish: Quite long and surprisingly peppery, leaving a smooth memory of chili pepper in the maritime aftertaste
