Oban's Distiller Edition is sharp and well focused; no lingering, rambling smoke here. A sultana sweetness. One of the most tantalizing sherry noses - certainly the cleanest.
On the palate, there is crisp peat that softens to great richness in the mouth. Sweet, roasty malt with heathery dryness. Sherry notes keep back some pepper. In its place is luscious, slightly oily sweetness with juicy fruit and vanilla.
The finish is harmonious with deep cocoa notes, vanilla and lingering, earthy peat.
