Low smoke. Slight sweetness and smooth. What you would expect from Oban.

Kurt,
Oban’s complexity really shines with a hint of peat, salt, and spice.

Great single malt with nice balance between smoke and softness

Brett,
Maybe I got a bad bottle or something, but this literally tasted like murky pond water. Was it sitting out in the Sahara sun for 10 hours during the shipment?

Citrus, salty and sweet. Great power at the end.

Truely a smooth scotch whiskey! Beautiful amber gold color, Dry and sweet almost fruity notes to it. Smooth slow tingle of toasted black cherries on the tail of the drink. But all in all 9 stars for i am a realist and i have not met my 10 star whiskey yet! But Oban makes a damn close rock hard 9!

Keith,
My favorite of the Highland whiskeys. At first taste I thought the flavors were a bit muted but the more I drank the more flavors shines through. Not as overpowering smoke flavor as the Lagavulin 16 or Caol Ila 12. It’s a more mature complex flavors. It’s easy to pick up a number of different flavors and find something new with each sip.

Alon,
A really smooth scotch with equal mixture sweet and salty. I can also taste the wood in a really nice way. A fantastic blend, and a very easy scotch to enjoy.
