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.

    I gave this bottle of Malt Whiskey as a present. The man I gave it to prefers Oban Whiskey over others. We both came from Oban and know it's worth..

    I will digress from describing this malt by its flavour profile, and focus on the overall experience. I've been tasting and collected scotch whiskies now for about five years, and haven't tried this malt until tonight. I am so regretful that I haven't sooner. *Poured 1.5 oz with a couple drops of iced water, and rested for 15 minutes. -The flavours jump onto the tongue immediately, with a wonderful marriage of all of its components; none too overwhelming. -I am blown away at the minimal alcohol fumes, which makes it easier to taste through olfactory. In other words, for being at 43%, It's MUCH smoother than many I've had at 40%. -The smokiness is certainly noticeable, but it doesn't dominate the aftertaste like many malts are. -It is certainly sweet, but not syrupy OVERAL: After the first sip, I knew right away that I would always have a bottle of this in stock until the day I die. I can't say that for many. Additionally, I will likely use this to introduce people to scotch whiskey.

    Been "actively" drinking whisky for a few years and this is by far one of the best I tried. Sweet and fruity (I really liked the dried figs note) but with that light smoky feeling that really strikes me when I drink scotch. The oak wood finish is strong, but not too much, and it leaves you with a feeling of satisfaction and warmness. I would give it 4.5 stars, just because I fancy a stronger taste more.

    We had the pleasure of tasting 20 different Scotch whiskys while staying at Glengorm Castle on the Isle of Mull (western Scotland). My husband loved many, but for me, this was the only one. Most others were too dry and peaty for me. I loved the sweet, smokey flavor of Oban. The autumnal spices were complex and delicious! Definitely a smooth, easy to drink whisky.

    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
