Oban Little Bay
70cl / 43% abv
Oban Little Bay is created using small batches of Oban Distillery's finest single malt whiskies married in small casks to maximise contact with the wood.
The unique process, combined with the expertise of Malt Master Dr. Matthew Crow, delivers a signature rich, smooth expression with a classically rich and fruity Oban character, elevated by pronounced maritime and citrus character.
Nose: Unequivocally maritime - oily, with brine, seaweed, teak and suggestion of green apple.
Palate: A dense and coating mouth feel - sugary and slightly minty - with a warming, comforting sweet chewiness of richly fruited malt loaf. Occasional hints of orange zest and clove are evident.
Finish: Growing drier towards the finish with a continuation of the menthol and green apple earlier detected.
