Oban 2006 Distillers Edition

Mint Oban 2006 Distillers Edition

This is the most recent bottling of the Oban Distillers Edition, distilled in 2006 and bottled in 2020 after a second maturation on a Montilla sherry cask. I am putting it head-to-head with the release…

Oban 2005 Distillers Edition

Overripe Fruit Oban 2005 Distillers Edition

Whenever I go to for dinner in a restaurant and I see the Oban 14 on the shelve – this does not happen very often, I admit – I order a dram. This classic, maritime malt in fact never disappoints. That…

Oban 1998 Distillers Edition

The Best Oban 1998 Distillers Edition

Oban is one of Scotland's oldest distilleries, founded in 1794, but also one of the smallest with an output of a mere 650,000 litres per year. This has everything to do with the location of course, which…

Oban 14 Year Old

Oban 14 Oban 14 Year Old

Old review from November 2015; I scribbled this one down at a very interesting joint in Cuenca (Spain) named Jovi: it was a dark, leather-laden, English-styled old pub right in the middle of the old…

Oban 21 Year Old 1996 Diageo Special Release 2018

Sniper Oban 21 Year Old 1996 Diageo Special Release 2018

Someone whispered into my ear that the Oban 21 ‘does not deliver’. That’s a pity. But allow me to try it for myself. Lo and behold: it is a sniper. It starts somewhat closed, almost sneaky, but given…

Oban Little Bay

Oban for Easter Oban Little Bay

Hard to believe I've never reviewed an Oban before, since it's one of Diageo's well-known Classic Malts (according to them, anyway). One of Scotland's oldest distilleries, it was established in 1794 in…

Oban 14 Year Old

Sea Oban 14 Year Old

It had been quite a few years since I last tried the Oban 14 Year Old. Unwarranted neglect, I might add, for every time I try it, I quite like it.The nose has a malty heart with honey and citrus fruit…
