    What a nose! Too bad the rest cannot quite keep up.

      Not too sherry-heavy. Fruity (apples, apricots) and clearly refill-based with a fragrant, floral aspect. Enticing and surprisingly well-rounded. No alcohol burn despite the single-digit age statement. Amazing nose for such a young whisky.

      Perfectly okay at cask strength as well as with water. Quite some sweetness in the middle, with the typical tart, lemony Arran character only coming through at the end. Savory sherry meets citrus freshness: bit of a clash, but it works.

      Tinned fruits and fudge. No off notes, but also no surprises.
