Customer Rating
The Western Highland representative in Diageo's 'Classic Malt' series, Oban 14yo is a superb, full-blooded fruity malt with a whiff of heather and more than a hint of smoke.

    Salty and smoky nose. Fruity and salt on the palate, with hints of cereal. Good length. One of my favourite everyday drams.

    Oh dear. This is a soft, smooth, sweet & slighty smoky single malt. Only one thing disappointed me. The added caramel. From the very first nosing I detected it. It put me off what could be a very fine malt.

    Only been drinking whiskey for a few years. This is by far the best single malt I've ever tasted (so far)... Honey on the tongue before the spice hits. Sweet and smokey after. This whiskey is incredible. Only giving four stars because I haven't tred a ton of single malts. However this whiskey is superb!!!

    Sweet honey nose, oily mouth feel with some fruit and spice, finish is mostly spicy with a dominate mineral note on the finish. 85/100

    Fantastic; especially for the price range. Warm honey dominating the nose is amazing.

    Wow! So so impressed with this whisky! I was recommended to try it and sceptically brought it on offer, and I have to say I think it is a beautiful scotch! Such depth in every mouthful, lovely sweetness of figs, honey and some stewed fruit, and a touch of smoke too. Anyone wondering weather to buy a bottle or not don't think just buy! You won't regret it! Brilliant stuff!

    This bottle had been in the cuboard for the 15 years since my father died, this Saturday I thought it was about time I tried it. I usually drink Laphroaig or Mortlach but found this very palatable and will now have to finish it off.

    It's the first whisky I ever tasted/bought. I've tried many other brands after that. But I always return to Oban 14 year. It's the one I drink now. It's the one I have to buy in between whenever I have been brave to try another brand. It's the only one that I until now can say is really wonderful. It's the one I always look forward to drink a glass or two of on Friday night after a busy week in the office.

    If you think this is pricey for and entry level whisky, there's a reason for it. Perfect balance of honeyed heather, malt and fruit. As far as the fruit goes figs are very prominent which I find very unique. The is a slight hint of peaty smoke on the finish which I guess is because of this distilleries location. The perfect balance of a classic highland malt and the islands. I highly recommend it

    Elegant heather honey, citrus and spice, smoke and peat not overpowering. A fine sipping dram with a bit of good water.

    Delicate, not heavy or peaty although I like those attributes, a fine mild scotch.

    This dram is delicious. Enjoy it neat. Not a bit harsh. It''s just the right amount of complex without being cloying. The smell of honey, oak and citrus is mouth-watering.
