Oban 1999 (bottled 2014) Montilla Fino Cask Finish 43% – Distillers Edition
The 1999 vintage Distillers Edition from the Oban distillery, bottled in 2014 but not before being finished in Montilla Fino casks for more depth and a kick of spice.
This finishing period imparts bountiful notes of cooked fruit and wine-like qualities, which create fantastic, dynamic flavour profile paired with the classic ‘coastal-yet-sweet’ Oban notes.
The founders of Oban distillery were entrepreneurs who imported and exported goods for which they could sense a demand.
They would have approved of the Spanish influence brought to bear in this Montilla Fino cask wood finish. A seriously complex whisky of the highest order – a glorious zesty nose and plenty of sweet fruit complemented by salt and chewy, roasty caramel malt.
