Distilled in 2006 and bottled in 2020, this 43$ ABV release is part of Diageo's Distiller's Edition - a special bottling from each of their prized single malt Scotch distillers.
Peach rings, pear preserve, honey, slivered almond and a touch of ash. Big, sweet vanilla bean, fresh bread, honey and toffee.
Thin to moderate mouthfeel. Sweet caramel, a touch of vanilla, almost a warm croissant note. Light, sweet, nice almond character for complexity. Touch of pepper on the back palate.
Long finish, complex and interesting. Sweet buttercream, pears, pepper, light oak. Faint sweet wine note that keeps the whiskey rolling.
It's hard not to love this bottling from Oban. The distillery certainly isn't known for overwhelming complexity, but this often overlooked Distiller's Edition is nothing to ignore.
