Oban 14 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 dram from the distillery.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is rich and smokey. The medicinal notes are quite evident with notes of the sea; seaweed, tarry ropes. There are notes of cut hay and wood smoke rising with a gentle estery sweetness. The palate is thick and full. Notes of citrus with smooth sweetness. The smoke wafts with notes of seaweed. The oak is quite rich with grist and cereal and malt. The finish is of good length with fruit and dry oak.

Oban 14 Year Old Reviews

Smooth and just sweet enough

Excellent drink! One of favourites!

7th January 2021

The subtle woody flavor blends well with the smoothness.

I was shocked at how smooth this whisky is. Truly impressive.

Smooth and Smokey

Although there are sweet notes on the palate for me the finish is smooth and smokey. I generally go for single malts on the sweeter side however this does not disappoint.

Delightful discovery

Just the right smokiness and strength.

10th December 2020

Delivers, again and again.

Nose: Subtle spice oak…hint of chalk.

Palate: Rich oaked honey. There's a somewhat unique deep throat test of orange.

After: A honeyed train of spice lightly closes this out. Superb.

Easy to drink!

This is smooth and easy to drink. It has a pleasant flavour - mildly orangey, honey with a bit of salt and a little heat at the end. A fairly new discovery for me and I will be returning.

Oban 14 re-review: just add water...

I've seen others post updated reviews before, so I thought I'd do the same.

Since this is the only bottle of whiskey I have on hand at the moment, I decided to pour another dram today. This time, I added a generous amount of water. The change was remarkable. Still a lot of sweetness on the nose, but the palate now features the brininess I've come to expect and love from the Islay scotches.

Other reviews I've seen online have noted Oban 14's mercurial nature, able to live in both the Islay and Speyside worlds. Now I see exactly what they mean.

Too sweet, but an interesting finish

This whiskey is too sweet for me, and there's not enough complexity to balance out the sweetness. What makes this drinkable for me is the complex finish, which as others noted does open up some interesting flavours--I just wish those flavors were more up-front. I can definitely see why others enjoy this so much, but it isn't my style.
