Whisky Reviews for Oban 1984

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.50 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Fresh and strong citrus mole with an abundance of oak, which is generally expected from Oban, the aroma with a good density and depth slightly disappoints with the set of ingredients, the taste / aftertaste is perfectly balanced, the fine work with the fortress - everything went not even into power and pressure, but turned into a stream of sparkling spring freshness. Lemonade barrel fortress.
    • Nose
      Dry, refreshing, mineral - dusty weather-beaten boulders, drying plaster; lemonade notes, wildflowers - the first nose reminds Clynelish without wax and honey, then the grain tones - raw grains, flour; mineral water, vegetable puree, potato peelings, lemon peel, perfume notes, camphor, a little carpentry.
    • Taste
      Lemonade, sweetness, then a powerful wave of pepper and strong, rich oak, a feeling of freshness, lemon, kumquat.
    • Finish
      Crusts of oranges and lemons, young bark and leaves of black currant, lollipops, lemonade, fruit sour.

  2. Largiemeanoch did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    The nose is very distinguished and floaty. The palate is a bit too assertive because of the high strength. Requires oxygenation and water.
    • Nose
      Shy, delicate. Spring garden. Grassy. Orange sherbet. Raspberry. Mint lollipop. A briny echo.
    • Taste
      Smooth, gentle at start. Then the alcohol strength breaks out. Iced mint sweets.
    • Finish
      Tangy (even with water), dry. Herbal.

  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    Oban is not a distillery which I regard very highly, but this one is really good. 89/90.
    • Nose
      Plum jam, apple compote, apricot, honey, toffee, lime, vanilla, leather, mint,
      malt, cocoa, fig and blossom. Tobacco as well. After a while quite some gingerbread comes up, or more specifically
      for the Dutch speakers taaitaai or speculaas. With water more waxiness. Great nose.
    • Taste
      Honey, beeswax, plum, leather, lime, caramel, apricot and gingerbread. Smoke and a slight nuttiness.
    • Finish
      Leather, plum, beeswax, blueberry, honey, apple compote, rhubarb, mint and smoke.
