    This limited release of Arran was particularly good on the nose, although the palate left it a little behind expectation. I guess this would be a nice starter for the a tasting session before all the big guns are coming.
    • Nose

      The first impression is fresh, light and fruity. Very friendly on the nose. Orange juice, barley and peaches are the most pronounced. When I close my eyes I get images of sunny Italian hills covered with vines. Toffee, nougat, those lovely Italian cookies (I forget their name), orange sweets, and yes, a hint of amaretto, and strawberry yoghurt. A fruity and lovely nose.

      The same softness is present in the palate. It is sweetish fresh, light fruity, I would call it very spring-ish. Some white fruits, nouga, white wine, some freshly baked breads. It is fairly simple on the palate compared to the nose, which often happens with wine finishes.
    • Finish
      85 85
      A short but nice finish where the nougat returns.

    An Arran with a complete ripening on trebbiano barrels is always interesting. Even now this distillery does not disappoint me. A strong and sweet whisky with a considerable influence of the barrels.
    • Nose
      Aromas of citrus, grass, leather and spicy tobacco.
    • Taste
      Strikingly sweet and firm and full. The wine is nicely balanced. Furthermore, spicy, very fruity, red fruit, honey.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and warm, with fruity and spicy notes, tobacco.

  5. Falnor scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Decent caskstrength Arran. Good for trying this type.
    • Nose
      An earthy start with different kinds of nuts. Paranuts and almond.
      Also some fruits like red apple, abricot and citrus.
    • Taste
      Very fruity and candy with a hot pepper. Marshmellow, strawberry and merrinques raspberry with some watermelon.
    • Finish
      Sweet red fruit with lemonade served with woodchips.

  6. Defeatless scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose:
    Sweet, hay, leather, little fruitiness. There is also an savory note.
    With water: There is more hay and some honey.

    Taste:
    Quite sweet, like in strawberry candy, there is quite a big wine influence here. It needs water to tone it down a bit.
    With water: Quite sweet, still the red fruits are in here. It can handle quite some water to get less of the alcohol heat. Then there is more hay, some honey and quite a bit of woodinfluence.

    Body:
    Full and round.

    Finish:
    Medium-long length. There is again the savory note, some 'dark' fruit influence.
    With water the aftertaste gets more in a woody- direction.

    Price:
    Decent for a CS and small batch.

    Presentation:
    Also good, everything you want on the label (age, little taste note, matured fully in Trebbiano casks, NC NCF).

    Comments:
    There is quite quickly a rather thick 'Scotch mist' in here. Which is appreciated!

    The operation of the Trebbiano Casks is a success, a strong fresh and sweet whisky as a result.
    • Nose
      Citrus, some white wine, a hint of tobacco, alcohol not very prominent, rubber, and some grassy.
    • Taste
      Pepper, fruity, red fruit, honey. Spicy, full flavor. sweet too, honey.
    • Finish
      Warm and soft now, tobacco, fruity yet, and sweet, honey. Fairly long.
