Montilla wines are produced similar to their neighbors in Jerez where Sherry wines are made, but instead of using mostly Palomino grapes, they typically use Pedro Ximenez. A Fino is the style of wine in use here which represent some of the driest wines made in the world and are generally delicate, nutty, and tangy. This is the type of cask that the Oban Distillers Edition is finished in.

Tasting Notes

"An aroma of a child's lunchbox fruit cup followed by a gentle wisp of smoke starts off the tasting. The whisky is creamy and soft on the palate with light sea salt, peanut brittle, and dark caramel. The dram is slightly more chewy than the Oban 14 standard bottling, but still retains the mild heather and peat smoke profile that the distillery is known for."
