Finally, an unimpeachable counterpoint to the rally cry against no age statement whisky. Oban Little Bay is everything that Oban 14 is, and more. A rich, fruity, malty nose showcases dried apricot, dark chocolate, and salt. On the palate, Little Bay explodes with flavor, combining malt with orange, chocolate, and blackberry. Clove and oak spice join the party in the mid-palate, which shows superb balance and integration. A long, slightly dry, citrusy spice finish caps off a stunning whisky.

As a note, I tried a wee sample of the Oban 14 alongside this. The latter was much fruitier on the nose, with more of an oily earthy backbone, while on the palate I got more cream, grass and toffee. It was also fresher than the Little Bay. Overall, I still prefer the 14, especially if Little Bay ends up priced in over here at a higher point. But, Little Bay is a solid whisky – it’s not been dumbed down as some might fear because it is NAS. It’s got lots going on and is very enjoyable.
