  1. bimbes184 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Nose: strong sherry aromas, but they are very fresh. A nice mix of light fruity, citrus and sherry flavors. Flowery, caramel, toasted almonds, hazelnuts, raisins, marzipan, lemon, blood orange, sweetened peppermint tea.

    Taste: oily, sweet, great onset, sweet / spicy, he pushes on with schnapps squash, apple juice, dried fig, peach, overripe pear, again the nut corners, milk chocolate.

    Finish: Medium long, very sweet, the oak is noticeable, becomes dry but remains sweet and slightly tart, the citrus notes always resonate in the background.

    Nice connection of the citrus-freight with the sherry-flavors, the alcohol-strength also fits very well. Not too young and no sulfur. Of that I could imagine a bottle zuzlegen, he is probably not too old, so it lacks in the mMn a bit of depth. Is still delicious

    I like it well, the Arran character can compete well with the sherry flavors and the oak, so you have a full, strong, but at the same time fresh whisky.
    • Nose
      Strong, sweet, but fresh sherry aromas, red apples, grapes, fresh figs. The sherry aromas combine with the Arran citrus character to blood orange. The oak comes up, bringing with it hazelnuts and spices. Cloves and aloe vera.
    • Taste
      strong onset, oily mouthfeel, sweet fruits, grapes, sweets (this time the dried) red apples, and the blood orange. Nutty and worthy comes the oak, nougat, cloves, cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Medium long, beautiful bittersweet notes, and again a certain freshness, between citrus and menthol. The oak already sounds with dark nougat.

    Deep in sherry. It's fruity indeed, compote of apples and grapes, but it lacks depth. It's nice in the mouth nevertheless.

    non chill filtered, natural colour, natural cask strength at a reasonable price.

      clean without sulfur. Opens up after a while to become a little more dusty.
      No alcohol burn to be found
    • Taste

      nice sherry flavour with dark chocolate and orange marmalade (think Pim's cakes from LU). Sherry isn't to overpowering i think.
      very nice consistency with a somewhat thicker mouth feel.
      Burn is more real here, but well integrated.
      Maybe lacks a little flavour but what can or would u expect for this price bracket
    • Finish
      88 88
      more chocolate and something vegetal in the aftertaste countering the sherry sweetness. some while like it, others will not.
      Finish is long and rounded.
