It is an amazing, balanced well-rounded refined whisky. It has a maritime influence meaning some hits of sea salt which makes it very unique & flavorful.

The second segment(Technical details that are mostly available on a google search)

I have already covered Oban 14 in my previous blog. Please refer to that for distillery info. 
Oban Distillers Edition takes the 14-year-old and matures it in Montilla Fino sherry casks.  The product story says "The Western Highland style OBAN Single Malt is epitomized by its gentle sweetness and surprising richness of palate and finish." It is an exquisite selection of double matured malt whiskies chosen from the very finest of Scotland's Distilleries.  
Well enough said, time to savor it to know if all this troy is true or not 😁. Enjoy my tasting notes.
