Great

Bradley,
If you enjoy a strong peat flavor, then this is your scotch. I can't stand it. This has a strong leather aftertaste. I understand that may be appealing to some, and if you really enjoy this scotch my review will seem off base. This was not for me, it was worth trying to expand and understand what I do and do not like. Again if you like Joven Tequila or an intense smokey flavor and a rich leather after taste this is for you and ignore my rating.

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..

Giulio,
Lighter peat makes it easier to drink, but has a slightly harsh finish. Flavor is good overall with a nice caramel tone.

Ron,
smooth but not much forward aromas, oban makes a great scotch so it is right in line with their others

Jonathan,
Lightly peated (2-3 ppm) the nose is bright with a caramelized sweet but slightly aggressive fruit. The palate is lacking, some earthy tones, darker flavors that for me where hard to distinguish. No peat till the backend and on swallowing the peat shows it’s face again coming up through The nostrils. The finish is slightly smoky but seemed to lack in other flavor notes. Decent, and a good little initiation into peat, but way overpriced for me to return to. $20/pour, $90/bottle.

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?

Awesome! Super smooth great taste new fav.
Oban 14 Year Old
Matthew,
Perfect balance of salty, smoky, & sweet. Great entry level for those not familiar with smoke and peat. Not the most complex single malt out there, but it is delicious and drinkable. A staple in my bar.
Oban 14 Year Old
Chris,
Got the sweetness a bourbon lover will enjoy, with a little peat in the middle of all the fun flavors. Super enjoyable to drink.

Not as good as Cragganmore, but still real good
Oban 14 Year Old

I’m not a Scotch guy - I’m a solid bourbon man... but the Oban (18) is AMAZING. Balanced, yet sophisticated, it is a pleasure to sip...

Very drinkable, based on the flavor spiral and reviews I expected much more smokiness... I got more pepper

A little bit more burn than the 14yr aged. But a lot more Oban flavor!

David,
Well balanced smokiness, salt and vanilla hits the nose, Big tastes of both vanilla and citrus makes up the body, A sweet finish that rounds of with the same smokiness as it began,

This coastal single malt has been my favorite go to scotch for the last two decades after discovering it while visiting Oban. It was much rarer back then.

Oban 14 Year Old
Wesley,
Love it! Fell in love with it the first time I had it. A small amount of peat/smokeness, but not overpowering because there's tons of other flavors too.
