Oban 14 year
Oban 14 lives up to its classification as a “Classic Malt” (thanks Diageo). This is a whisky that is eminently drinkable, with enough complexity to keep me coming back to it but not so much that it takes an hour of focus to enjoy. Overall this is great for simple Spring or Summer sipping when you don’t necessarily need to focus on your Scotch :) My only nitpick with the Oban 14 is its retail price of $79.99, which seems high for what you are getting. Still a good dram, but I’d look for a deal before picking up another bottle.
As a bonus, my cat walked through as I snapped my review photo, so I decided to leave her in :)
