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.

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

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.

Could be better

Received this as a Christmas gift and wasn't expecting much having seen wome reviews on YouTube. It's decent but could be a lot better at a higher percentage and without added colour. Definitely overpriced

Really solid Highland whisky!

Oban 14 - (On The Nose) honey, fruity, sweetness, apple, pears, vanilla, slight smoke/ peat. (Palate) fruity, honey, spice, figs, dry, malty-ish, light peat, some briny notes, citrus.

Bland but Not Offensive

Priced slightly above mid-range whiskies, the Oban 14 led me to believe that it would be much more an experience than it turned out to be. It has a charming nose, but missed having any character to follow that charm. While not noteworthy for being offensive in its taste, it simply hasn't the character to support the price. For the same money, one could have a bottle of the sublime Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban. This is more at the level of low to mid-range scotch like a Highland Park 12.

Doesn’t really know what it is.

Middle of the road; I’d go so far as to say nondescript. Not enough smoke, not enough citrus, not enough fruit and these characteristics combine to the extent that it appears smooth but in the same way that a lounge lizard is smooth ie no depth or character. It seems to be trying to be Islay and Speyside and fails miserably at both but then I’m a peat man and probably have the taste of a mad dog.

Floral and sweet

Tuath glass showing light tawny. The nose shows sweet, floral and lightly briny with hints of honey or syrup. The palate is moderately sweet with same floral and honey notes on the palate with a light smokiness on the finish. Moderate alcohol burn.

After 2 drops of water, a creaminess develops on the palate with the sweetness further revealing itself.

Smooth and just sweet enough

Excellent drink! One of favourites!

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.
