  1. erwinnlim scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    This does what it says on the tin. It's young, intense, heavily sherried and spirit forward with a light layer of peat on top. Value (£63) : 6/10
    • Nose
      On the initial nose I get spicy sherry. Red hots, dried plums, rasberries and morello cherries on the background of some milk chocolate. That fruity Arran spirit is very present with yellow fruits and some vanilla as well. Cider vinegar. Honey glazed meats over a barbeque. Layers of ashy peat (the addition of water brings this out so much more).
    • Taste
      Quite oily on the palate. Again intensely warm and sherried at first taste. those dried red fruits along with the spirit are present. Some barbequed meats covered in cracked black pepper. Drying oak tannins. A mixture of leather and cigar box characteristics. This benefits from some dilution which brings out some caramel sweetness.
    • Finish
      The finish is more tannin led and drying. Tobacco leaves and bitter cocoa. Some cinnamon and chilli heat. Some memory of the spirit character still remains however and then a whiff of smoke returns.
