Oban 18yr Old - soon to join the collection

Was at a party serving the new 18yr old Oban. Very nice - smooth thru the whole range.
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.
