    Arran 1998/2009, 53.5%, OB bottled for The Nectar, cask 353, 283 bottles - Arran - 87/100
    Sherryvat. Nice fruity nose. Pear, apple. Honey. Flowers too. Very nice. Also in the taste a lot of fruit and honey. Slightly bitter, a pleasant bitterness welsiwaar. My best Arran to date. Well done guys.
    Second was something completely different, and that is an understatement. The Ardbeg Supernova saw the light a month or two ago via a limited committee bottling. If I had been a little faster, I would have one in my closet (or would I have sold them by the quadruple). But it was waiting for the official release. Quite daring to give this peat gun (100 ppm!) A second, but as number three brought sherry, it might not have been so badly watched. http://onversneden.com/2009/04/23/a-freight-new-bottles-part-i/

    Complex? No. So what? It is a great whisky. Very nice cask selection indeed.
    • Nose
      The sherry influence is immediately discernable on the nose, which seems to be sweet and fruity. Apple and dried apricots. Dried flowers, as well. Some mint and toffee. Truckload of honey. Dusty, too. Nice.
    • Taste
      The dried apricots and honey return on the wonderfully creamy palate. Very spicy. Liquid gingerbread. Turns slightly bitter towards the end. Delicious in all its simplicity.
    • Finish
      The finish is slightly drying and very long. Heartwarming.
