very complex, medicinal alcohol up front with a flowery aroma behind it. Taste starts with sweet caramel followed by a touch of spicy pepper. As I swallow I get lots of complex oak, leather, a touch of smoke, boiled peanuts. Very long finish that lingers.

Overall this has a very nice balance and the finish holds on to your tongue so that you can keep thinking and exploring.

As a fan of the Oban 14 yr myself - may I suggest you try the Clynelish 14 yr...IMHO the finish is even better with the Clynelish.

Incidentally, I bought a bottle of each (the Oban 14 yo and the Clynelish 14 yo) on the same day about a year ago. The Clynelish is long gone, while I'm sipping the Oban right now. An excellent dram though: not quite sweet, not quite salty, perfectly balanced... think I need a refill to find those leather notes.
