Small casks, small bay, small town. But big Whisky.

Long before Oban was a lovely seaside resort town on the West Coast of Scotland, John and Hugh Stevenson built their first still house there in 1794. So the town literally grew up around the Whisky — we're no city planning experts, but it doesn't sound as a bad way for a town to grow.

The blokes at Oban have only one wash and one spirit still and the Whisky they produce is considered one of the classic malts of Scotland — a virtual national treasure. Oban is in the Highlandsbut its position on the far western coast gives their spirit a very unique character. 
 
Oban Little Bay is a bit redundant since the word “oban” already means “little bay” in Scots Gaelic. Like all Oban Whiskies, this is a fine Single Malt. But Little Bay is also their first NAS — which means that it is a combination of their Single Malt across a range of ages that were married in small ex-Bourbon barrels. 

Oban Little Bay has all of that lovely coastal character, but with a gentle, heather quality. Sweetness plays with the spice just like cool breeze plays with the warm sun in that small bay.

Jacob
Wonderfully refreshing Scotch. Very fruity with a strong honey finish, one of my favorites thus far!
Rajan
Very refreshing light flavor and amazingly sippable whisky. My friends and I loved it
James
Very good. Some spice, some sea spray, quite a maritime character.

Sweet and spicy with a crazy short finish not bad, but not good enough for me to want a bottle.
Randall
Extremely mellow. I prefer it over the 14yr and 18yr Oban's and one of my favorites to bring out when having friends over and convert them into Scotch lovers then turning it into a Scotch tasting party.
Frederic

I want!.
Kegan
Very very good whisky. Richer or bolder than Oban 14 in some ways. However, Oban 14 is better-balanced whisky with more complexity and nuances in the nose and taste of the dram. Little Bay is 9 out of 10 bottle everyone should try once.
Benjamin
Love it, somewhat richer flavor than the Oban 14, which is also a good one.
