Aberlour is probably my favorite single malt scotch, but its followed very closely by Oban. Actually depending on my mood this could change and Oban might be my favorite for the evening. Oban is a Highland Whisky. There is a little smokiness to the Oban but its not like the strong peaty whiskey from Islay. It has a beautiful gold color with a rich full nose that is at times sweet and then smokey with a little peat. It has a delightful dry finish that is very smooth and a little sweet. My daughter who also loves scotch likes Oban very much. My partner Mark would probably give 2 or 3 points but he prefers the very peaty scotch. I give it a 4 rating but on a good night I might give it a 5. Its a toss up at times for me Oban or Aberlour.
