Oban 18

Oban 18Oban 18, 43% ABV.

This is a West Highland single malt, from a small distillery with limited production.  The Oban 18 is aged in oak casks.

A subtle nose, understated citrus notes.  On the palate, I find peach and honey with an emerging spice and oak.  The finish is long and warm with nuanced spices.  I found the finish pleasantly surprising, the character and depth of this scotch unfolds in smooth waves.

This is an excellent whisky.  If you want pronounced peat and smoke, Oban 18 is not the dram for you.   But, if you want a smooth, easy drinking, not overly sweet single malt, I would recommend giving this one a try.  It has all the character you would expect to find in a complex whisky.
