Nose: Much fruit; orange and pear. Seaside and peat smoke. Almost like walking through a coastal orchard. Long legs.

Palate: Very rich, fall fruit and spice, white wine.

Finish: Medium finish. Dry sweet oak, a faint saltiness, black walnut.

Oban was my introduction to the highland malts. I don't find this as tantalizing as Dalwhinnie 15, or as smooth as Aberfeldy 12, but it is a fine Highland malt all the same. This is one of the few I enojoy more with a drop of water. Definitely a good dram from time to time.
