A nice single malt scotch to taste at least once, was expecting a smoother finish, not very smokey, but overall pleasant

Oh dear. After being a wine collector and drinker for many years I recently stumbled into the world of SMW. Like a fly caught in a web. It was the Oban 14 YO that turned my head. I have always had a weak spot for cognac and the Oban is similar in style in some ways. Oban is a new love along with with the many others recommended by friends more experienced in the area. My education is just beginning; my wallet the poorer.

Not a bad single malt by any means ,just not a top tier in my opinion. Something sharp about it leaves a feeling of imbalance and/or unrefined. I know peeps who really like it, but Id rather a Dalmore, Balvenie or Glenfiddich for the same price point. Wont buy again.

This is a GREAT scotch to give to just about anybody, as it is a perfect all arounder.  A great balance of flavors and not too sweet, smokey, or peatty.  I usually give it to novices to start the evening, and it always garners smiles and wows.

While I'd tried other single malts at bars, this was the first one I purchased a whole bottle of. Smooth and buttery; not too much smoke or too much sweetness, but still complex in flavor. Needless to say, it's still my favorite single malt.

See, here's the thing with Oban -- it's a Scotch for all seasons. Light enough for Lowland groupies, enough rough edges for those who normally drink Laphroiag. It's a safe whisky, with a nice, fruity, praline glow. It's what you buy for someone who you know likes Scotch, but you have no clue what Scotch.

This is probably the best tasting one for all levels of whisky lovers. It even remains fine to drink on a hot day.

If I could have only one single malt on my shelf, it would be Oban. Wonderfully complex, with just the right amount of peat smoke in the nose and on the tongue.
