Hailing from Scotland's Western Highlands, this is a no age statement offering of Oban and is matured in a variety of casks including refill barrels with new oak ends, European oak and refill hogsheads. The whisky is then transferred to finish aging in small casks, much like Laphroaig Quarter Cask. This product was released in early 2015. As Oban is Gaelic for “Little Bay”, so this whisky is really named Little Bay Little Bay.

Tasting Notes

"A complex nose with dried plums and apricots, confectioners’ sugar, malt syrup, oak, and honeyed fig. The palate is as equally tempting, opening with nice malt tones, Granny Smith apple, citrus peel, sea spray and milk chocolate notes. Gentle oak and spice notes begin to emerge, with cardamom, ginger, and clove coming to the forefront before leaving. The finish is relatively quick and lively with orange marmalade covered scones and black tea to finish. "
