Whisky Reviews for Oban 1997

12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.17 points

  1. LDB scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I like it a lot, there is a certain smoked ham note like with Benromach, the Oban looks creamy and smooth to me, but still has enough interesting details without being boring.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Tart spray, roasted almonds, small wood fire, lots of honey, but also meaty and spicy
    • Taste
      86 86
      A little delicate wood smoke, leather, honey again, hazelnuts, the whole thing is oily and supple
    • Finish
      85 85
      Salted caramel, cream candy, the sweetness becomes drier, a light floor wax note remains

  4. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nose: rather delicate, quite fresh, on the pear from a distance, then other fruits when approaching. It's sweet, it's flowery (a bit like a rye), granary. In the mouth, fruits, cereals again. Sweet spices but biting. Discreet woody note. Combine sweetness and presence. Sweet final too, not very intense, but rather long, with a slightly bitter and grassy aftertaste but inevitably very pleasant. The overall impression is very good! Thanks to Vincent (Du Malt Au Palais)!
    Enthusiasm 4/5

  5. EarlMobile scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Nice fruity whisky. The finish does the oban well, making the DE a lot more interesting / better than the standard edition. Still not a very complex whisky, of course, but nice to drink.

  6. pianoman scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Restrained. Rosé wine, old cellar, fog, damp soil.
    • Taste
      Interesting profile. Fruity, spicy, dry. Orange with ginger. Nutty bitterness.

  7. Mr.Edradour scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    The montilla cask adds some interesting flavours to a really good basic whisky.
