It had been quite a few years since I last tried the Oban 14 Year Old. Unwarranted neglect, I might add, for every time I try it, I quite like it. The nose has a malty heart with honey and citrus fruit, but also a nice smokiness and loads of pepper. I get some figs and something that reminds me of the sea. This is a nice and aromatic nose. It is quite full of flavor and pretty feisty. Loads of heather, pepper and some maritime elements. In the rather short finish, the saltiness returns, with some toffee. Admittedly, it is not the kind of grand malt that makes you lyrical, but still it delivers what you pay for. Thanks, Pat!
