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

      Very light, which indicates a low%, fruity, acidic, I had early forest berries on the nose, cinnamon, pepper, changes
    • Taste
      85 85
      Absolute "sugar" bomb in the mouth, now very sweet fruity, then comes a spiciness, chilli, pepper, salt, Christmas spices like gingerbread, no sign of burning, the 50% does not notice
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length, fruity persistence

  3. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The influence of the Italian red wine barrels makes it something warm, spicy, fruity, pear and plum. In the mouth it is mostly woody. Prune, caramel. Very good finish.

  4. Andreas W. scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nice fruity malt, I like it. But still very young. The aromas are concentrated and powerfully carried on the first start of the high alcohol content, but fade quite quickly and it forms a slightly metallic / spritiger finish. Prices less than 40 € I think OK, over 40 € he would not personally worth it.

  5. Heiko&Paul scored this whisky 80 points Member Junior

    Nose: Flowery, quite appealing, fruity but with 50% to sprittig and distinct youth.
    Slightly reduced to 43%, it opens up and looks rounder overall.
    Tongue: Softer than expected at first, fresh fruit notes then the alcohol hits. Reduced again better and a little more complex.
    Finish: Not long enough. Kind of tinny.

    Conclusion: A little more maturity would be a dream

    Good malt with a very interesting smell and taste. Something else. Unfortunately, a bit spry and young.
