- Lightly smoky on the honeyed, floral nose. Toffee, cereal and a hint of peat,
along with a whiff of the seashore. The palate offers initial cooked fruits,
becoming spicier. Complex, bittersweet, malt, oak and more gentle smoke. The
finish is quite lengthy and aromatic, with spicy oak, toffee and a touch of new
- Delicious. Fruity-salty and earthy.
Juicy oranges with a tiny hint of smoke. More ripe summer fruits like green apples and pears join. In the background light maritime notes, a touch of oak and and dryness.
Oily and salty-sweet in the beginning. Wax and turn orange, vanilla, caramel and lots of salt again.
Mitellang with salt liquorice, orange peel and some oak, becoming dry.
- The Oban 14 is in my opinion one of the best whisky buys out there at this price level. Interestingly, it strikes me as having a mix of Highland and Island traits. It is light to moderately smoked, it has coastal salty notes, it is fruity (pear?), vanilla and a lovely sense of fresh American oak is also present. I have always pictured it to taste like as if it were a 50/50 mix of Talisker 10 and Glenmorangie Original (Island and Highland). Great Scotch at a very fair price.
- Well a nice allday Dram. Not spectactular. Little boring to be totaly honest.
Sour fruits, apricot, citrus aromas. Very little oak. Can´t really get the peat.
Smooth and mild. Little sweet, some more oak. Maybe a liittle peat, but not that much. Some salt and vanilla.
Kinda dry, still smooth. Medium-long finish.
- One of the best from the coast!
sweet, grass, malt. with water some nuts, sherry, citrus.
medium body, seaweed, brine, nice spices at the finish. with water gets some sweetness but gets thinner.
