The nose has a strong orange smell, and quite a lot of other citrus fruits. The slight hint of smoke adds a lot of depth. The plate is quite te sale, with wonen vanilla and salt added. Medium finish, great dram.

General description

Lots of honey and tropical fruits, and a small touch of smoke on the nose. Easy sipper. Taste is strong initially with notes of oak, malt, and earthiness. I'm not getting much sweetness on the palate, maybe a slight dry sparkling cider. No burn and a bit spice the more I drink. Finishes with a dry oak and slight medicinal notes. Not bad but had higher hopes. New bottle so I'll revisit at another time.

General description

Una malta de Highland casi nunca decepciona, buen balance, cuerpo y final pronunciado, para despertar los sentidos, la madera hace lo suyo para lograr cerrar la geometría de este buen escocés.

Nose

Redondo en nariz, amaderado, frutos secos y vainilla

Palate

Muy suave, caucho y nueces, no se pierde al reaccionar a los moléculas de agua, un poco de pimienta.

Finish

Final muy apreciado, larguísimo pero regresa para cerrar una figura bien balanceada, un whisky bien logrado.

General description

A good expression of West Highland malt. Full bodied, but a bit lacking in palate.

Nose

Sweet. Fig jam. Honey. Malt. Fruit cake. Sherry. Touch of peat, barely there though, and slightly salty/brine notes.

Palate

Malt. Fig jam. Sherry. Tiny bit of peat (barely there) caramel.

A bit lacking in complexity and not very challenging. For the money, age and “classic malt” appeal I expect much more

Adding water is almost a must. Flavours become much more rounded and minor oils enter.

Finish

Medium. Pleasant, but not memorable. Fig jam and malt flavours are most prominent in the oily finish when water is added.

General description

Oban's standard 14 y.o. expression is matured in refilled ex-bourbon hogsheads. Fine stuff that's almost perfectly balanced, quite smooth and velvety, herewith strong and elegant. The complexity in a strong package. There are smoky notes, but it’s definitely subtle, more a waft than a plume. There's a slight maritime character to it that is very agreeable. Lovely thick mouthfeel as well.
Overall this Scotch that’s well constructed and interesting across all the senses. Very nice and harmonious malt.

Not a big fan of smokiness, this one has a perfect balance if I want something stronger, oceany flavoured. For me delicately salty, spicy and fruity at the same time. Like a orange with some spice marinated in sea water.

General description

Der Oban 14 darf bei mir nie ausgehen. Er weist sowohl fruchtige, leichte Aromen, als auch maritime Noten auf. Der Torfrauch ist unaufdringlich und rundet den Geschmack wunderbar ab.

Eine gelungene Mischung aus Highlands und Inseln.

Die Brennerei empfiehlt sich übrigens auch sehr für Besichtigungen. Ich durfte dort vor 3 Jahren einen wunderbaren Nachmittag verbringen, ab den ich mich gerne zurückerinnere.

Nose

Unaufdringlicher aber präsenter leicht torfiger Rauch, herbe Eiche mit Vanille-Noten, etwas Frucht und ganz viel Meer

Palate

Zuerst eine rauchig süsse Note, danach enwickeln sich Vanille sowie maritime Aromen und eine leichte, nicht unangenehme Pfeffernote

Finish

Langanhaltende Eiche, Rauch, angenehme leicht maritime Nachklänge

I tasted this Speyside alongside a Balvenie doublewood 12. it was around the time of my return to scotch from Irish whisky. This is a light Whisky much like Green Spot is a light Irish Whisky. Light and easy drinking but the Balvenie won out on flavor.

A bit smoky when drinking it neat for the first sip. With an ice cube, it transforms into a strong tang of fruitiness. It remains fruity for the rest. A fresh new taste for me.

General description

Again a Diageo classic malt on my table.
The Oban 14Y this time.
This golden dram comes at 43% and is on the market since 1988. Made at a very small distillery in the western Highlands.
You can taste and smell the seaside in every part of the tasting.
The nose offers spicy alcohol along with summer fruits and a touch of peat smoke.
The taste gives you a smoked malty dryness and some sweet summer fruits.
The long gentle malty finish again offers some faint salty smoke.
All in all a very stable and advisable whisky. But in my humble opinion not the best one of the Diageo classics.

76 points.

Nice well balanced Highland single malt with a touch of smoke.

Nose

Mild smoke with hints of fruit and honey

Palate

Well balanced with a mild smoked taste over fruits and honey. Not an over powering profile for looking to get a taste of warm smoke this is a good place to start.

Finish

Warm toasty mild hints of spice. With a smoked peety finish.

albeit a Highland, she has a medicinal start similar to Laphroig. So she takes u straight to the islands. Then becomes more "civilized", ends with typical Highland honey. Smoke is very decent throughout the phases..

I really liked this. Has more in common with a speyside malt than a highland malt. Due to the location of the distillery O was hoping for a little peatiness, it wasnt to be but I enjoyed this. Very smooth, has a sweetness in mouth and subtle aftertaste.
