Pretty sweet on the front end, giving way to peat on the back end but smooth throughout.

Michael,
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.

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

Great Scotch that goes down smooth and warms you up!

David,
One of my absolute favorites. On the darker side of the scotch spectrum (#scotchspectrum), which is probably why I like it so much.

NOAH,
The only Whiskey bottle my friend and I could finish in a few hours. This is so delicious!!!

Marques,
Absolutely wonderful. My new favorite by far. Very friendly (As opposed to something like an Ardbeg or a Laphroaig), but still complex on both the nose and the tongue. A little pricey if your not familiar with scotch prices but well worth the money.

Günter,
Very remarkable finish to finish a perfect Scotch Single Malt dram

Superb peaty yet subtle scotch.
Oban Distillers Edition
Kurt,
Oban’s complexity really shines with a hint of peat, salt, and spice.
Oban 14 Year Old
Lawrence,
Smoke and vanilla nose. Smoke and seaweed. Thick. Full. Honey. Sweet. Good length.

Brandon,
Wonder sipping scotch, no ice, no water. I think it’s probably the smoothest scotch for under $100.

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.

very “wooden” taste

Smoke and vanilla with light honey - the one scotch I can drink in any mood

Great single malt with nice balance between smoke and softness
Oban Little Bay

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..

Angenehme Nase, fruchtig süßer Geschmack mit Honignoten im Abgang, sehr fein zu trinken! Gerne mehr! Highlander Pub/Wien - 05/19

Caramel and spicy
Oban 14 Year Old
Giulio,
Lighter peat makes it easier to drink, but has a slightly harsh finish. Flavor is good overall with a nice caramel tone.
Oban Little Bay
Ron,
smooth but not much forward aromas, oban makes a great scotch so it is right in line with their others
Oban 14 Year Old
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.

Owen,

Oban 14 Year Old
Jason,
Really enjoy this one. A nice smooth finish with good flavor but not overbearing

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?
