Oban Little Bay Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Image courtesy Diageo. This Oban expression takes different types of casks and blends them in small quarter-size casks for final maturation. The result is a whisky with a smooth, rich, and fruity nose with notes of apples, peaches, apricots, wet beach sand, a touch of driftwood, and honey. The taste has a good fruitiness with touches of apples, peaches, pineapple, orange peel, coconut, and a hint of brine. The finish is lingering, fruity, and rich. (January, 2015)
