Oban Little Bay undergoes maturation in the tiniest casks obtainable within the distillery, namely 200-litre ex-bourbon barrels. This meticulous aging process yields a luscious whisky adorned with the distinctive flavors of stone fruits, a tantalizing touch of spice, and the alluring sweetness of honey.
NOSE– Oily, waxy and nutty, balanced by ripe orchard fruits. Notes of almond fruit cake on denser Christmas pudding, with cereal and orange behind.
PALATE – The comforting chewiness of rich fruit-bread, hints of orange zest and clove, growing drier, still minty, with crisp green apple.
FINISH – Syrupy with elegant coating tannins rich in dark chocolate character.
