Description

The bouquet perfectly reflects the refined spirit of the Oban distillery, and the slightly salty notes give a clean air to the Scottish assortment, balancing it.

Oban 14 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has flavours of rich fruits, smoky dryness, honeyed spice, and a whiff of sea salt distinguish this full-bodied Highland malt. Overall A true classic, Oban's 14 year old is a great coastal dram for lovers of lightly smoked, fresh malts. While it’s easy to enjoy Oban 14 mindlessly and as a “background whisky,” which I normally gravitate toward, I like that it has a little more depth to its character that can be appreciated if given enough attention. Elegant and glowing, it marries the sea air character of the Island malts of the soft, richly fruit style of the highland, creating its own rich tasting West Highland malt. The spirit has been matured in ex-bourbon refill American oak hogshead casks and is captured at 43% ABV.Fine single malt whisky has been made in Oban for over 200 years, in one of the oldest licensed distilleries in Scotland. A bustling seaside resort has grown up around Oban distillery in the two centuries since it set up home in a fishing village.

This “dustiness” manifests in slightly various ways depending on the whisky; when it comes to this one, it leans more toward stale chocolate chip cookies. A good lingering finish with the orange zest flavour slowly fading out only for the underlying smoke to endure and last a little longer. First time I tried this scotch whisky was in March 2021, and I never have much acquired the taste for scotch, as I like fine bourbons. Great malt I have been drinking malts for over 50 years mostly islay malts and also like Talisker 10 year old.Oban Distillery is a Scotch whisky distillery located in the town of Oban on the west coast of Scotland. Today, Oban is said to be the second smallest distillery owned by Diageo when it comes to production capacity, at 870,000 liters per year. The first settlers arrived on the mainland in 5000 BC and sheltered in the natural caves of the land then known as 'An Ob'. The cramped nature of the site places severe limits on production, which in turn means that demand for Obans richly appreciated malt is always likely to exceed supply.

Once that settles though that zesty and citrusy set of flavours is joined by a real heather honey sweetness, a good bodied malt and just a little smoke. The spirit is matured in a combination of American oak and European oak casks, which gives it a unique and complex flavour profile. Once I poured in a dram and settled down on my desk, I went to Malt, wondering what others have said about this whisky, and was shocked to learn that there haven’t been any pieces on Oban 14 yet! A review of this single malt is definitely long overdue, and I realized that rectifying this gap in Malt’s archives would be great for the site and its readers while also serving as an excellent way of getting myself back into the rhythms of writing.Facebook sets this cookie to show relevant advertisements to users by tracking user behaviour across the web, on sites that have Facebook pixel or Facebook social plugin.
