5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.96 points

  1. LiquidThoughts scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very nicely aromatic, almost not noticing how long it has been in the bottle, the finish lacks a little stamina with the 40% of course.
    • Nose
      Ingenious aromas, virtually no OBF despite being bottled in 1982, deep, various dried fruits, peach, apricot, honey, nice note of wax, candied ginger, very full for 40%, blindly estimated at 46-48%, candied light nuts, pear and a hint Salt
    • Taste
      Peach, wax, nice salt and oak, hint of dusty but well within the range, leather, apricot, honey, ginger, bitter orange, nice, subtle malt, quince, honeydew melon
    • Finish
      Quince, honey, very nicely polished oak, ginger, malt, medium length

  2. Astrid scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    One of the few independently bottled Oban. The profile is pleasant and beautifully complex with nuts, fruit and oak. For the full review, go here: https://halbendrinks.de/2022/01/17/brown-label/
