  1. maurisso scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

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

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

      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.
