  2. Issie did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Very noticeable warm smoke, honey, some cinnamon, the alcohol is clearly noticeable, grasses, vanilla, sweet pastries, some apple, melon

      The nose gets used to the smoke and alcohol over time and from there it becomes sweeter and fruity
    • Taste
      Honey, herb candy, lemon, grapefruit, some wood, smoke, ash, pepper

    Im not sure Arrans delicate floral whisky would stand up to peat and if this is any indication, then I’m right. Obviously very young. Grainy alcohol, vegetal Peat, cheap citrus and a little floral. Not my thing at all. A release like this is just not what whisky should be about.

    All peat and strong alcohol feels. No body, no finishing.

    Granular peat, a little sticky, vegetal. Swamps. Humus. Nice mouth, but average finish.

  8. drkrylov scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    The sixth batch of Arran's peated single malt, with a redesigned paper label. Peated to a level of 20PPM, Machrie Moor is named after the peat bog on the western part of the Isle of Arran.
    • Nose
      Classic tropical sand dune notes alongside some alluring peat smoke.
    • Taste
      Golden biscuity barley, pineapple, vanilla, lemon and lime peels, it's what we expect now, and it is good.
    • Finish
      Long and fruity with lingering peat smoke.
