Oban Little Bay, Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a core expression matured in small casks. This whisky is matured in refill American oak hogsheads, European oak Sherry casks and refill casks with new ends before allowing the resultant single malt whisky to marry in small oak casks. The result is a whisky that is bold and complex, with luscious notes of Christmas pudding, citrus, and spice, with a dark-chocolate finish.

70cl at 43% alc./vol.

TASTING NOTES


APPEARANCE

Rich antique gold.

NOSE 

Oily, waxy and nutty, balanced by ripe orchard fruits. Notes of almond fruit cake on denser Christmas pudding, with cereal and orange behind.

TASTE 

The comforting chewiness of rich fruit-bread, hints of orange zest and clove, growing drier, still minty, with crisp green apple.

FINISH 

In a word, long. Quite syrupy at first, then drying, with elegant coating tannins rich in dark chocolate character.
