A vibrant cacophony of flavours pulsing with hints of tropical fruit and whispers of exotic sea air.

Finished in Caribbean Pot Still rum casks.

Vivid energy and a vibrant mix of Caribbean cultures collide in a roar of jubilation, amid a euphoric atmosphere. Bright colours burst forth to the parading beat of steel drums. Celebrating the passionate soul of the Caribbean, spinning Soca dancers lift their faces to the tropical sun, exuberant and radiant in the exotic sea air.

Inspired by the merging of rhythms in the beating heart of calypso, our Malt Master finished this lively Oban expression in Caribbean Pot Still rum casks. The vibrant combination evokes unexpected tropical notes of sugar cane and mango, which build on Oban’s own clever fusion of the Highland and Island styles.

A glint of gold announces the summer sun while the fresh aroma of a sea breeze, backed by notes of citrus and enhanced by hints of tropical fruit and a dry spiciness, quickly brings the carnival closer. On the palate, an oil-smooth texture is accompanied by a joyously sweet, richly fruity and lightly salty taste that dances across the tongue, finishing with an insistently spicy beat.

Tasting Notes


 A mild and fresh nose overall, rich in distillery character. The top notes are fresh and faintly maritime, suggesting a sea breeze, seaweed, warm dunes, and a hint of iodine; they are backed by lemon citrus and enhanced by sweet-spirited tropical traces of sugar cane and mango learned from the rum finishing casks.


 An exceptionally smooth mouthfeel introduces a fruity and citrus sweet, lightly salty taste, again true to the distillery character, balanced here by an insistent yet never overpowering spiciness. A dash of water rounds softens and sweetens, bringing up the oil-smooth citrus character.


Quite short, finishing spicy and smoothly mouth cooling. A light, lingering, sweet aftertaste becomes more profound and longer if water is added.
