Oban Single Malt Scotch Whisky 18 year old
Rich gold appearance. On the nose, rich peat smoke and spicy wood come quickly to the fore, backed by the sweet opulence of soft, ripe fruit: bananas, pears, plums. Medium bodied full and rich, with good legs. On the palate an immediate, mouth-filling sweetness balanced by an attractive smoky-malty dryness, with sea salt centre stage. A splash of water softens the spicy edges and rounds the whole. The finish is long, smooth and sweet, becoming oaky-dry with slivers of dark chocolate and salted caramel.
