    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
    leather

  4. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Delicious. Fruity-salty and earthy.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      Oily and salty-sweet in the beginning. Wax and turn orange, vanilla, caramel and lots of salt again.
    • Finish
      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.

  8. mister glenfarclas scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    Well a nice allday Dram. Not spectactular. Little boring to be totaly honest.
    • Nose
      Sour fruits, apricot, citrus aromas. Very little oak. Can´t really get the peat.
    • Taste
      Smooth and mild. Little sweet, some more oak. Maybe a liittle peat, but not that much. Some salt and vanilla.
    • Finish
      Kinda dry, still smooth. Medium-long finish.

  9. Angelos scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior
