A deep gold color. On the nose perfumed tones, sweet, with a whiff of smoke. On the palate medium smooth body showing round, warming, malty flavors, with delicate peaty undertones. The finish is long, fruity and smooth.
The town of Oban is also known as the 'Gateway to the Isles'. Two brothers, the Stevensons settled here in 1778 and greatly enriched the hamlet, as it was then, with their business activities ranging from slate quarrying to shipbuilding. In 1794 Hugh Stevenson built the Oban Distillery, hiring an experienced Lowland distiller to manage the whole operation.
