I first tried Oban 14 last year, while watching the M-1 Grand Muay Thai Championship at Nokia Center; it was the only single malt Scotch they had at the bar. Preoccupied with the event, I can only recall that the drink was satisfactory, and that the bartender’s generous pour lasted me for half the night. So, when I encountered a bottle of it at Costco for a relatively good price, I thought I’d give it a whirl and try it again…
..and having sampled it a handful of times in the past 3 weeks, I can say for certain that I’m not liking this that much, or really, at all……Sorry.
I guess I can take solace that Jim Murray also gave it a 79 score, and thinks that it’s “absolutely all over the place. The cask selection sits very uncomfortably with the malt…”
Yea, Oban, to me, is an “eh” whisky. Oh well.
