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.

    my daughter bought a bottle of this for me, when she couldn't find my favorite, Tobermory 10, but boy what a malt, will definately buy myself one when it has gone! 10 out of ten.

    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.

    A bit to fruity for my palette . Pleasant aroma and start. Finish is tangy. Although it has many flavor hints. Prefer a more smoky drink

    I was, to be honest, rather disappointed with this admittedly fine Scotch. For the price, I think I was expecting something a little more over the top...yet Oban tasted really not much different than most lighter scotches I''ve tried. Lots of dried fruit, wood, but nothing that made me say "Wow!!". Don''t misunderstand - it is by no means bad in any way...just was expecting something a little more I think. For Highland scotches, I''ll take Dalmore or Glenmorangie any day over this, and for much less $.

    My first real Scotch. Its smoothness makes it easy to drink, especially for those who aren''t used to Scotch (and expect it to be harsh), and its fruits, vanilla, and sweetness make it enjoyable. I find women really take to Oban for these reasons.

    I might be unsophisticated, but Oban is the best Scotch I''ve ever tasted.

    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
