Review #114 | /r/Scotch Review #44 – Oban Distiller’s Edition 2015
The Schtick: This is the 2015 release of the Oban Distiller’s Edition.
ABV: 43% ABV
Mashbill: Single Malt (Barley)
Nose: Hay, honey and grain. Light cream and a tiny bit of floral fragrance.
Taste: Thin mouth feel but sweet honey followed by a mild spice. Very little alcohol on the tongue and not a whole lot going on besides sweet grains and mild honey. It’s delicious, if a little one dimensional.
Finish: Medium and gentle. Sweet.
Overall: I like this but it’s not wildly complex.
