Aroma: Sweet with ripe banana notes at first, toasted muffins even a trace of toasted tea-cake, then the familiar Oban key-note as sweet smokiness drifts above a faintly salty base. Palate: Fruity like a rhubarb compote. Pleasantly smooth textured, very easy to drink. Easy balance of primary tastes with a distinct trace of salt. Finish: Long, elegant drying. Lovely late smoke and cocoa. Oily and rich. Late aniseed with long tannins.
