Oban Distillers Edition 1998-2013


This particular edition was bottled in 1998 at 43% abv, and was released in 2013. It is a truly stunning whiskey; I often call it liquid gold. It is one of my favorite whiskies because it is smooth and balanced with a pleasant spiciness.

This Oban has a medium viscosity and is slightly oily in the mouth. It is pleasantly spicy and fairly dry which is due to its months in the sherry casks. The pleasant sweetness in the nose comes from the fruity element (think dried plums or dried orange rind — nothing too saccharine). When sipped neat, sweeter notes are tasted first, and then the spiciness overpowers, giving way to a pleasant burn at the front of the mouth. It is mild and not overpowering – a cinnamon/peppery kind of spicy.
