  5. topos did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    it was an interesting experience but i don't think i could drink a bottle of this. very much worth trying though. 6.5/10
    • Nose
      unusual. are we in india here? it's rather "paul john", but extra sweet with cherry pie filling and fudge. some perfume comes out with time, rosewater? really quite good but in danger of tipping into the sickly side of things for me.
    • Taste
      matches the nose quite well, with cloves and candied orange, but then something doesn't quite work here. a butyric note competes with the spirit.
    • Finish
      quite long - effervescent, apples, some chocolate, cherry liqueurs. profile is fairly two dimensional overall.

  7. chalky scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    Colour is a nice Amontillado Sherry colour. The nose is one of the sweetest I've tasted, really interestingly so and thoroughly unctuous. It's an interest mix against what feels like an obviously sherried whisky but that Red Wine finish just powers through to dominate, all in a harmonious way. The palate packs a real punch, it's warming but not overly so, it's really fruity, mixing both obvious red berry with quite a tropical undercurrent. The finish is clean and well balanced, this is not a dram you're going to want to drink a shed load of at once but it's all the more interesting for it. A real occasion dram

    Wow this is special...

    Reduced with a 3/4 teaspoon of water

    Nose: A fruit salad of cherries and red plums in orange juice, a little tobacco

    Taste: Deep red wine, clove and oranges (a high end sangria?), dark chocolate, black tea. Slightly herbal and pleasantly drying in the finish.

    The Arran spirit and Tuscan wine casks really come together here in a unique, well-integrated and flavourful dram that I keep reaching for.

    One of the stand out whiskies of 2018 for me.
