    Great adult Arran. Complicated, but with recognizable features of distillery. Barrels and alcohols complement each other well.

      Tight but not heavy. Arran's recognizable profile: flowers, green apples, perfume, freshly cut grass
    • Taste
      88 88
      Saturated, buttery. Tropical fruit sweetness, green tea, light mineral notes
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long, spicy, slightly bitter. Fresh wood, spices, medicine

    Color is gold.

    Aroma: Open, fresh ????. Ripe pear ????, "Duchess" lemonade ????, vanilla, marmalade, honey ????, warm apple pie ????
    Flavor: Berry mix ???? from sweet and sour garden fruits ????, marmalade ????, baked crispy dough ???? ... ???? The list can be continued for a long time ???? Finish: Long, berry and fruit ???? ?????????, with a delicate malt bitterness. Completely duplicates taste and aroma.

    Conclusion: Very pleasant, perfectly balanced whisky. Although I did not find information about the barrel, I am 99.9% sure that this is bourbon. Plus I would like to note the strength of 53%. For me, she is perfect in this sample. If it were smaller, the scotch would most likely begin to seem watery, and a large one could dull the beauty of fruit and berry aromas.
