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 Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
