Oban 14 Year Old Bottling Note

A bustling seaside resort has grown up around the distillery in the two centuries since it was first built in the fishing town of Oban. The West Highland malt is still produced in the same unhurried, traditional fashion and this 14 year old is a classic whisky from the distillery.

(70cl, 40%)

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Smoky, maritime nose with hints of sticking plasters and toffee brittle.

Palate: Smoky, creamy palate with notes of marmalade, toffee apples and pear cider. A development of cloves comes late palate.

Finish: A long, malty finish with toasty oak and spice.

Overall: A true classic, Oban's 14 year old is a great coastal dram for lovers of lightly smoked, fresh malts.

Oban 14 Year Old Reviews

From De Bruyne to Greilish

In 2021 this was priced at £38 and remained at reasonable price till 2022 when all hell broke lose. This is still 1 of my favourites and at once upon a time it was fine like De Bruyne, now it's overpriced like Jack Greilish!

Overpriced classic

Unbelievable to see the price rocket in recent years.

This is a nice whisky but there are many alternatives at a third or even half the price that are as good.

Best viewed through a rose tinted speculum.

I sampled this as part of a pack, and have had it a couple of times in bars. Inoffensive and smooth, not improved with a drop of water, but some pleasant notes of malt and bitter orange. To my surprise, I actually preferred the Aberfeldy 12 from the pack, but would reach for Clynelish 14 over this.

The price irritates me. I have paid more than this for a bottle, but I would not pay £71.95 for Oban 14. A classic, you say? I say you can find much more interesting drams, or even smoother and tastier drams, for much less than you now pay for this. Someone below said "a smoother, sweeter, Highland Park", and I agree. I also prefer Highland Park

Expensive for what it is, but that's a lot

It's a fantastic bottle of scotch. You won't be disappointed unless your standards are far too high for a bottle under £50. It's not overwhelmingly sweet like some bourbons, nor is it aggressive or harsh. It's a word that people who think they know a lot about whisky hate, but it's smooth. It's a fantastic gift to get someone who doesn't drink whisky but wants to. There is always a bottle on my shelf, for guests, or for when I'm a bit blown out for a big Islay.

A perfect scotch

Oban 14 is perfect. Even though I love peaty whisky this stands out as a perfect balance between the islands and speyside. Don’t listen to those who are peat or Sherry cask biased this is simply wonderful

A decent all-rounder.

I think this is a good choice to introduce a rookie to scotch. It has a very inoffensive and balanced flavour. I agree with others that it is overly sweet, but this would be a positive if you were new to scotch. In this middle priced bracket, you can certainly get more distinctive and interesting whiskies. Enjoyable, but nothing to write home about.

Smooth and malty

Wonderful fruit and a little honey. Oaky, malty, Scotch!! I love scotch, and I truly believe this is yet another masterpiece from Scotland. It is a cornerstone of any decent home scotch bar. Peppery malt deliciousness!!

A smoother sweeter Highland Park

Well rounded and easy drinking. Primary flavour for me is subtle heather and honey.
In its own way, I quite like it, yet it's also kinda forgettable.
If it was 2/3 the price, I'd buy it now and again.
But for that money, I can buy Longrow, Glen Scotia etc, which for my money offer so much more flavour

Strong and pungent

It's a toasty, peppery, and briny experience. If that's your thing, it's great.
If it's not, it's rough.
