Tasting Notes by WhiskyNotes
Nose: elegant. Malty start, alternating between sweet, fruity flavours (peaches on syrup, honey) and drier, more maritime associations (seaweed, manzanilla sherry). Hints of smoke.
Palate: good attack, oily mouthfeel. Rather sweet. Rich nutty and malty flavours, with notes of tobacco, chocolate and spices (nutmeg).
Finish: medium length, on chocolate, vanilla, pepper. Getting drier and slightly peaty in the end.
Nice interaction between sweet, fruity and dry, maritime notes. Much better than the regular Oban 14yo in my opinion.
