Oban Distillery is found beneath a steep cliff on the West Coast of Scotland in a port town of the same name. In fact, the town was built around the distillery, highlighting the importance of Scotch production to the economy of the day (and probably these days as well!). The distillery itself was built in 1793, making it one of the oldest in Scotland. The malt produced here is the embodiment of the salty coastal surrounds of Oban Distillery itself.
 
The Oban 14 Year Old tells a tale of its seaside home in every sip. Reflecting the rough rocky shores of “The Gateway to the Isles”, this dram is thick with smoke and tangy sea air. If you close your eyes you can perfectly imagine the waves rolling in over the crags and the salt wind blowing through the Whisky barrels. Despite the peated elegance of this malt, it is brilliantly smooth and will become your new favourite malt if you give it half a chance!

It feels like a lighter Laphroaig 10. Not too smoky, sweet and vanilla. Not my taste
