Review: Oban 18 year old
August 14th, 2008

Oban, 18 year old, 43%, $150

I really like this whisky. Drier, less toffee and fruit, more dried spice and oak when compared to the standard Oban 14 year old.  A beautiful combination of rich, nutty toffee balanced by polished oak, salt, pepper, seaweed, distant smoke and dried fruit. Somewhat oily in texture. Wonderful depth too! An improvement on what is already the biggest selling Diageo single malt scotch in the U.S. Very exciting and dynamic. (7,700 bottles available only in the U.S. this autumn and at the Oban distillery.)

Advanced Malt Advocate magazine rating: 91


The cheap bottle I ordered is canadian club classic 12


I've heard that its got some vanilla to it, and that's my 'thing'.

Problem is no one carries the 12!

so I had to order it.

I had a wonderful Macallan that had a vanilla taste to it.  It was some oneoff version.  The Unchill Filtered.  Don't remember the year.  Reasonable priced so I think it was 12-15.  Never seen it since though.
