    Wonderfull well matured signature of Arran. A lot of fruit and vanilla. A very long warm, mellow and creamy finish. Stunning !

    • Finish

      Very fruity and creamy finish. Again pineapples and some apricots as well now. A long and nuttyness and woodyness stays in the mouth for quite some time.

    The third trilogy from Arran. To me this "second of the third" is the best bottling ever so far.

    A different take from the previous Brodick Bay. Minus the floral, green, grassy notes. Plus some sweet fruity and explosion of fruit notes. No citrus.

    86 now, 2 months later.

      Fruity start, smells like a bourbon matured scotch. Light wood scent. Give it 20 mins or so, it will open up.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Thick and dense vanilla bean, crushed up cardamom, parsley, hint of pepper. Honeydew melon, pink lady apple. Full cream milk.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Very long finish, rather wet. The lingering melon and honey taste still wafts around. Quaker oat cereal like sensation, the feeling like some bits are stuck between teeth.
