Oban 14 Year is quite the crowd-pleaser and is found everywhere from your local pubs to serious whisky bars. Its fans might be surprised to hear it hails from one of the smaller distilleries in Scotland. Also small are the size of their pear-shaped stills. Oban, a seaside town built around the distillery, is actually named after the distillery and not the other way around. The surrounding environment clearly has influenced its namesake whisky as the sea is the signature footprint of Oban whiskies.

Tasting Notes

"Oban 14 Year is a very likable dram indeed with flavors of pears, sea salt, heather, toasted barley, and a touch of earthy peat smoke. This is a whisky many claim to be a favorite from novices to experts alike (as we can attest to from the mobs of folks at the whisky shows). Find out for yourself what the fuss is about."
