Small casks, small bay, small town. 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.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Think Whisky never helped us learn more about the world? Think again! A cave discovered during Oban's 18th century refurbishment was found to contain human remains from the Mesolithic era.
