Member Reviews and Ratings of Oban Little Bay
I like Little Bay a bit better compared to the original Oban
I found this to be a very good, unique...but not amazing dram. Aroma brought rich spice, orange zest, and slight vanilla. Flavors of salt, leather, cooling mint, and touches of wood and butterscotch made up the taste. Very nice mouthfeel. I'm still no whisky expert by any means, but this was one of the more unique expressions I've tried thus far. And I dug it! Probably wouldn't buy a full bottle, but would happily have again at a bar or as part of tasting.
O an in any form is my favorite Scotch. This version had a smooth apple cinnamon finish. Definitely would buy again.
Apple and cinnamon dominates the aroma. The long finish features orange and lemon. The finish is smooth and spicy. A great intro to scotch
The cinnamon and apple were prominent to the nose. Spice and orange dominated the smooth finish.
Great intro to scotch
I really enjoyed the Oban Little Bay. Oban 14 year is one of my favourites, and comparing the two there are a lot of similarities, though I do think i prefer the 14. To me, the Little Bay was a little lighter and fruitier than Oban 14. In my area, Little Bay can be hard to find, and the price on Flaviar is the best I’ve seen, so to me it was well worth it and I might pick it up again.
Sweet with a hint of salt and smoke.
The little bottle from the little bay that could. I've been wary of these non-aged expressions, but this one is excellent, and at the right price point. A fruity nice. Spicy on the palate, but no peat. Just smooth. Butterscotch and vanilla.
One of the best Obans I’ve ever taste. Nice smooth caramel flavor. I always keep a bottle of this in stock in my home bar.
Smooth, sweet & simply sip-worthy!
good sipping whiskey, nice peat flavor, not too strong
Decent Clean tasting Oban
Really enjoy this. Wonderful aroma that reminds me of summer. Very smooth, with a clean, pleasant taste. Definitely something I'm going to buy more of. Very pleasant sipping neat. Excellent quality for the price.
It’s a nice whiskey, the flavors don’t come through as I was hoping. Got a great deal on a bottle
Smooth. Good for price
I like it better than the regular Oban 14
Exceptional taste and smoothness. Really found this to be most enjoyable
I expected more brine than I detected. Still, a great Scotch for winding down after a long day!
One of my go-to sipping scotches when I’m looking for an enjoyable flavor without overt challenging smoke or peat. Pairs well with a book & quiet.
Smooth and lite. This is a great scotch for those who are not into the smoky flavors.
Smooth. Good smoke. Light, slight burn. Very nice
This is a very smooth scotch. Nothing extraordinary, but very pleasant to drink. I like to enjoy this one with food, it doesn’t overpower what you are eating.
Excellent. Rich but well balanced. Light but full flavoured. A good one.
Really enjoying this
Smooth and drinkable neat. While I didn't get many background notes of flavor, this is still a great dram. Need to try the 14yo..
smooth but not much forward aromas, oban makes a great scotch so it is right in line with their others
Awesome! Super smooth great taste new fav.
A little bit more burn than the 14yr aged. But a lot more Oban flavor!
Smooth. My second favorite Scotch
Love it, like others Oban's bottles. Great scotch.
Smooth and flavorful. I say honey/caramel with a hint of peat. This is a bottle I will keep around because it is simply tasty. Plus, if I want to share something with those who are not sure they like Scotch, this is a great introduction. Very approachable. The flavor is not as in-your-face as, say, Lagavulin or Laphroaig but still says, “hey, I’m definitely not bourbon”
One of my favorites
Full of flavors. Must have bottle
Probably my favorite Oban.
Very nice. Very light with a balanced sweetness. I get bit of apple, mint, ginger and orange zest.
i like that its a bit sweeter than the classic oban. surprisingly tasty
Surprisingly easy to drink, which makes it dangerous in a social setting. Not like other Islays. Slightly sweet. More like a bourbon than a scotch.
Woah. This is what I'd like to call beach scotch. It's light and strong.
This is my favorite summer-time scotch. Refreshing and sweet, while not overpoweringly so, very strong undertones of honey. A great bottle for someone who is new to the smoky/peaty daunting flavor profiles of traditional Islay scotches.
A fair bottle, but a little to light. More earthy tones would help.
Love this scotch. So drinkable
This is just not my thing. It has big flavor but it has a metallic finish.
Very refreshing light flavor and amazingly sippable whisky. My friends and I loved it
Very good. Some spice, some sea spray, quite a maritime character.
Sweet and spicy with a crazy short finish not bad, but not good enough for me to want a bottle.
Extremely mellow. I prefer it over the 14yr and 18yr Oban's and one of my favorites to bring out when having friends over and convert them into Scotch lovers then turning it into a Scotch tasting party.
Oban is one of my favorites - Oban Little Bay is amazing
Very very good whisky. Richer or bolder than Oban 14 in some ways. However, Oban 14 is better-balanced whisky with more complexity and nuances in the nose and taste of the dram. Little Bay is 9 out of 10 bottle everyone should try once.
Love it, somewhat richer flavor than the Oban 14, which is also a good one.
