A visit to... Oban

There's not much to say about Oban: the city is really nice but the distillery tour was the worst that I had during the trip. The tour made an unprofessional impression, the tasting after the tour was more than simple: just an ordinary 14 yo. standard Oban. Oh stop! I forgot the cask sample that we got... 2 drops per person! Yes, 2 drops. The guy measured it with a pipet. When he asked me for the taste I told him that it was impossible to taste anything when you just wet the tip of your tongue but there was no chance to get any more of it. I'm sorry to say but it was my first, last and only visit to this distillery. Due to the stupid Diageo "no-pictures-policy" the number of pix in that report is also limited...
