An exquisite selection of DOUBLE MATURED malt whiskies chosen from the very finest of Scotland’s Distilleries

TASTING NOTES:

  • Colour: Amber, rose-hued.
  • Nose: Outstanding. Fruity and pungent; sea salt with crushed grapes, orange zest and hints of smoke. Massively complex.
  • Palate: Most explosive Oban ever. 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.
Description

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.
