    Light "easy drinking" malt. I like it a bit better than the other Arrans because of its fruitiness. Price performance is right in my opinion.

      Fruity sweet, cherries, dark fruits, some grapefruit with it.
      More time brings strawberries, currants and a light vanilla.

      Soft start, but then quickly becomes sharper, a little bit retains the sour red fruits. Slightly bitter, a little woody. At the end a little milk chocolate.

      Short finish with a light honey sweetness. Sounds fast but very pleasant. Seasoning then comes to the fore.

      Fruity fresh; Clearly recognizable red wine. Dark fruit and this sourish note. Certain barrel note (oak) comes through;

      tart; the red wine shows up; then becomes a bit milder; not as sour as expected; rather a bit bitter;

      Wine; then oak, beautiful spiciness; Almost a hint of sherry with a light cinnamon note. Wow, I did not think so. The oak brings a nice delicate bitter touch; it leaves a slightly sweet note with a touch of freshness (almost flowery) and a touch of molasses

    A really nice summer whisky on the balcony. I really liked his fresh, fruity style.

      Holla. Already when pouring a fresh, very fruity scent comes out of the glass. In the glass itself, the colleague seems a bit more set. Moist wood, bright currants, vanilla and fresh cherries. With some time in the glass something like raspberry tea comes. Really a very fruity representative. Mango comes after. A light acid game in the background.
    • Taste
      A little tough start. Tingling mouthfeel. Spice sharpness and bitter almond. Then followed by fresh, somewhat unripe berries. Peach and sour orange marmalade. Slightly bitter wood flavors and dark chocolate. Some artificial plastic is still going through.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. First nutty bitterness and vanilla. Then a sweet note of honey settles. Has something of fresh honeydew melon.

    It has that typical red wine cask flavour. Nose isn't really full of red fruit, bit light, some marsmello. In the beginning more alcohol, after some time more fruit.
    Taste is nice. Typical red wine cask, some red fruit.
