My wonderful wife surprises me with a bottle of fine scotch a few times a year. Under the Christmas tree 12 15 1013 I was gifted with the 97 Oban distillers edition. I can not say enough about this work of art. Not often does ANY product live up to all or any hype.. This does. From nose to palate, to lingering finish.What a merry Christmas indeed.

I have sat down with this lovley dram and its brother the regular 14, which I enjoyed but wasn't super impressed with. However, Obans distillers edition is one that I have really enjoyed and it could be the fact that the Montilla Fino sherry casks have done wonders to the orignal spirit.Nose- bouquet of ripe fuits,rasberry,black cherry, almost sour cherry/citrus note as well as a lovley heather honey, vanilla and sea breeze brine characteristic.Palate- Enters nice and sweet with honeyed malt, dark cherrys and chocolate covered nuts. Medium to full bodied which gives you a nice mouth feel. candy Finish- Short to medium finish. A drying but mouth watering seabreeze brine with Malty vailla trailing off and a slighty bitter fig.Overall- If you enjoy a sweeter scotch and love sherry Obans use of the Motilla Fino cask add a unique twist on what we are used to and I highly recommend buying and giving te disillers edition a shot.
