I found some details that describes it as ...
Nose: Sweet, fruity, complex.
Palate: Floral, heathery and creamy. Some noted lavender with characteristic Oban saltiness.
Finish: Dry and salty (in a good way), slight smokiness
I've seen it for as much as $450 per bottle in the US to as low as £160 in the UK. We have it at our local for €215 so it seems to be fairly priced compared to the others I've seen.
So .. has anyone had the pleasure ? .. should I part with my cash for this ? ... theres only 6000 of them out there !
Ordinarily, the stuff they choose to sell in that format is top notch, and chosen for that reason - it's a display of the distiller's capabilities. My reasoning on the super-premium malts, however, is that I'm liable to receive more pleasure from two bottles (or ten in extreme cases) of "ordinary" whiskey - like Black Bush, or Aberlour, or Highland Park, than the pleasure of one wonder-bottle. Of course, this logic has its natural limits, and I don't try to buy 3 bottles of swill instead of one decent bottle...
That said,if the stuff is calling your name and no one will be hurt by you purchasing it, why wouldn't you try it out?
