  1. StyrianSpirit scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A very fine-filigree malt, which stands out for me by the exciting combination of ex-Bourbon barrel fruit notes with floral aromas. In the aroma and taste very interesting, it disappears in the finish relatively quickly, like a breath of wind.

      Filigree grape fruit notes, Isabella grapes; Morning dewy meadow flowers, ringlots. The color of rosé wine, the aroma, it could actually be a bit more fruity Schilcher wine.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Very fine light Bourbon barrel fruit, pleasant flowery freshness, only very light spice. The rosé wine notes are a bit more intense. Over time, some "cheesier" notes are added. The oak announces itself more clearly.

      In the medium-long finish, the Bourbon barrel fruit disappears relatively quickly, the flowery also; like a distant breeze.

    Grainy alcohol and aggressive red fruits clash and the result is unharmonious. Lacks elegance, but hey what do you expect when a young whisky meets an aggressive cask. Arran seems to have fair pricing at least.

  4. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Surprisingly round and polished. Cherry lollipops and redcurrants as well as salt in the background, Jaffacake with raspberry filling and malt.
      With water: saltier and chocolatier. Bursty accents, effervescent powder with orange and raspberry. Fanta.
    • Taste
      Round, full and buried. Kirschlutscher again or better lollipop. In addition, chocolate, pepper, salt, soaked Loffelbiscuit, dreaded tea.
      With water: salt, lemonade, chocolate and malt.
    • Finish
      Medium long, berry and chocolaty.

    Sometimes finishes can improve a whisky, this time it didn’t. Tasted at the Wicked Whisky Compagnie Arran tasting.
