    Very standard and not complex.

    A young and intense whisky, I was expecting maybe even more peaty, but finally this one leaves room for something else and it is rather nice. This sweet malted side that I appreciate at reasonable dose in others like Ledaig or Caol Ila bottled at Signatory Vintage for example is present here. I recommend testing it without water at first, then add it gradually if you want to soften it. That said it should not be too dilute on pain of reaching a threshold of sweetness turning to the disgusting. www.passionduwhisky.com
    • Nose
      Nose: This nose does not lack texture, it is peated of course, fat, enveloping. All in all it's quite sweet, on impalpable sugar, mint. Yes it is fresh, the vanilla itself comes lightly. The backstory is made of honey and fruit very typical Arran, apples, pears. The peat makes me think of an antiseptic ointment, but it is not too aggressive. Probably this should be suitable for fans of Machrie Moor. A few drops of water will bring lemon cream.
    • Taste
      Palate: In his malty approach, he demonstrates youth. Alcohol does not bring the whole into an irreparable imbalance. The soft aspect of the nose is somewhat jostled by wood, spices. But in the second part of the mouth a return on barley sugar, ripe apple, honey, vanilla, will restore a balance. The peat is particularly vegetal, slightly bitter.
    • Finish
      Final: Long, on sweet malt. The plant aspect seems to settle.
