  1. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Part of an online tasting with AD and BA. This was the first of the 3 BA bottlings. According to Frank this is most likely an Arran and it’s a ‘third fill’ European oak sherry cask.
    • Nose
      Quite an alcoholic punch but also loads of sweetness from the start. This one needs a little airtime. It’s a very rich nose. Giving lots of peach, figs, raspberries and such. There is a lot of age inside this cask, giving cigar tobacco. I love it.
    • Taste
      Intense flavors. Thick sherried syrupy taste but certainly not a modern bomb, more of a classic sherried whisky I’d say. High quality palate. The European oak clearly left it’s mark here. The amount of richness is bigger then any American oak seasoned barrel could ever offer. A wee drop of water takes away the alcoholic sting, giving more room for it’s complexity. It is said that is is a rather young whisky, but I certainly would not call it that, tastewise. Tobacco and cocoa powder.
    • Finish
      Long length. Fresh herbs like oregano taking the palate here. Together with a lot of sweetness of yellow raisins and some blueberries it makes a great finish for me. Great stuff! Intense and a wee dry due to tannines, but it never gets annoying.

      This is quite a remarkable dram if you ask me. My cup of tea for sure.
