      Drinking strength perfect, pineapple, light sweetness, fermented fruit, mango, passion fruit. Everything very well integrated, nothing unpleasantly prominent

    At the beginning very sulphurous. With time in the glass, the whole evaporates noticeably. Overall sweet and creamy, alcohol is very well integrated. A nice spice completes everything. Not a typical Arran, but a nice whisky with rough edges.

    Boha ... what a sulfur bomb. The typical Arran taste I had to look for a long time here, the sulfur covers a lot here.

    An unusual Arran, intense notes of the Madeira barrel!
