The Distillers Edition Oban 15 Year Old 70cl 43%
Like all of Diageo’s Distillers Edition bottlings, this Oban 1995 has been double-matured, in this case using fresh Montilla casks after an initial maturation in normal casks. This double maturation gives the Distiller’s Edition an extra dimension and greatly enhances the flavours.
Nose: Dark chocolate, with fruit and nuts. Salty tang but also a slight fruit must.
Palate: Rich, smooth and coastal, rolling waves, chocolate and dried fruit.
Finish: Long with salt, caramel and samphire.
