Nosing: peat, seashells, green apple, kiwi fruit, sweet, oak

Taste: Spice, pepper, nuts, citrus, fresh fruit, salt, malt

Finish: long, dry, malt

Comment: A very unique dram. Juxtaposed between the the sweet smooth highland influence and the raw spicy coastal flavours. Like a smoked salt and pepper squid topped with a fresh fruit salsa.

Color: Amber
Nose: grapes, peaches, fresh leather, vanilla, fresh orange, a pinch of sea salt, apples, bananas
Palate: espresso, chocolate, muscovado, red pepper, peat smoke, butterscotch, caramel
Finish: Cotton candy, coffee, egg liqueur
I have it together with the Bunnahabhain 12yo glass by glass to compare these two wonderful drams. Oban is more sour-like on the nose, a little bit more peaty on the palate, but if I'd have to pick the winner... it has to be the Islay beauty.
But the Oban is truly wonderful Whisky. Very good, very tasty, gentle, rich. GREAT! Interesting proposition for summer, warm evenings. Highly recommended

Farbe: Bernstein
Nase: Weintrauben, Pfirsiche, frische Leder, Vanille, frische Orange, ein bisschen Meersalz, Äpfel, Bananen
Körper: Espresso, Chokolade, Muscovado, roter Pfeffer, Torfiger Rauch, Toffi, Karamell
Finish: Zuckerwatte, Kaffee, Eierlikör
Ich habe ihn mit den Bunnahabhain 12 Jahre zusammen. Ich möchte sie beide vergleichen. Sie sind beide wunderbar. Oban ist ein bisschen säuerlicher in der Nase und rauchiger im Geschmack, aber ich finde den Bunnahabhain auf alle fälle besser.
Oban is ein ausgezeichneter Whisky.
Sehr leckerer, zarter, reicher Whisky. Super! Eine interessante Vorschlag für warmen Sommerabenden. Ich empfehle ihn herzlich
