Damn I never felt the smoky finish but it was a bit flavorful at the finish since I am used to blends. My fave being black label. As a single malt I enjoyed it. But it will take me some time to really figure out its ambiance. But I like it so far so 4*
We all have fond memories of our first true love. I tried others, but Oban 14 is my go to for enjoyable sipping for the price. I''m ashamed to say I''ve spent 4x the money and was let down. Money isn''t everything.
Pleasant smoky aroma. You can taste the salinity of the sea and a burst of spice. A simple dram that I enjoyed but definitely feel there are other options to consider when dealing within this price range and age bracket. Don''t feel I''ll explore this again but am happy I did try it since other I know have enjoyed this bottle.
A decent run for your money. Subtle and gentle with the peaty smoke which is balanced well with the overall notes of fruit and salinity. I actually enjoy the smoke in more peaty bottles like the Lagavulin 16, but if that does not suit your palate, than this is a good choice.
Perfect balance of sweetness maritime influence andlight peat smoke. A good long finish I do not notice as much smokiness as other reviews which suites me as not a lover of heavy smoked whiskys. Just bought DE of Oban looking foreward to trying it
a nice complex whisky .. for the money probably the best deal going.
underrated and delicious.
An instant rush to the taste buds, with a low level finish which is soon over. A very individual whisky of medium body, quite pleasant, perhaps a little overpriced.
The first sip changes every second--very, very complex. An almost perfect combination of smoothness, brine, citrus, vanilla, peat and smoke. To my mind, a quintessential Highland malt. Superb.
Took a tour around this distillery, and a very fine tour it was, even found out that the distillery came before the town and picked up a wonderful Oban whiskey glass to boot. However, the highlight of this tour is certainly the tasting at the end where you get to sample this whiskey in its various incarnations. Wonderful drink.
