Representing the West Highlands in Diageo's Classic Malts of Scotland, Oban 14 features a mineral and slightly salty character. The aroma is both engaging and complex with juicy blood oranges, toffee, fresh tobacco and a lovely coastal touch. After its briny and spicy arrival, the taste develops with intense wood influence, bitter walnuts and a surprising flash of menthol. Astringent dryness and faintest hints of spearmint remain of a weak and quickly gone finish, where chill-filtration has taken its toll. Not the greatest malt of the range, but worth a try.
