Nose: sweet and smokey

Body: Full-flavored and assertive but not over robust. Smoke flows throughout.

Palate: Slight bite, but the smooth smokey sweet taste blends into an equally tasteful finish. Smoke lingers slightly in the palate for a few seconds. Unlike Bowmore, this whiskey does not overwhelm you with smoke.

I do enjoy the Oban. Might have to have a dram this evening... :)

I agree with your 7.5 rating. A friend gave me a couple of samples a few days ago(a group of 4 of us are swapping 2oz flasks) and I tasted just what you did. I like it, I like it....but I'm not sure I'd go out and buy a bottle of it. Maybe with more tastings, I'll come to appreciate it more.

I have yet to purchase another bottle to date. My one friend still has an opened bottle of this that he never drinks himself. So when I am there, I 'm happy to drink it for him. Have you ever tried Macellan 18?

I highly recommend Doublewood 12. For the price, it's simply amazing. The 15 is disapointing however.
