Whisky Reviews for Oban 18-year-old

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.82 points

  1. Alex did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    "Aroma: Sweet with ripe banana notes at first, toasted muffins even a trace of toasted tea-cake, then the familiar Oban key-note as sweet smokiness drifts above a faintly salty base.

    "Palate: Fruity like a rhubarb compote. Pleasantly smooth textured, very easy to drink. Easy balance of primary tastes with a distinct trace of salt.

    "Finish: Long, elegant drying. Lovely late smoke and cocoa. Oily and rich. Late aniseed with long tannins." - Malts.com

    I am not sure that the extra 4 years helps this one.  It's OK, but nothing special.
    • Nose
      Malt.  Demerara sugar.  Humid sea air.  Cane syrup.  Celery salt. Pine branches. 
    • Taste
      Drying.  Dusty leather. Thinner than expected.  Sweet sugar cane. Ripe bananas. Sourdough bread, then baking chocolate.
    • Finish
      Medium and salty. Dry.
