    I was supplied with a small sample from the distillery. The nose is rather dry with lots of alcohol coming through. Very intensive on the palate - spices, dry white wine, some citrusy notes. Long finish, which lingers around in your mouth for some minutes. I dont like the nose and the palate very much. In my opinion it would have done well in the cask for some more years. But I do like aftertaste.

    • Nose
      88 88
      Very direct nose, something artificially fruity-sweet ... Nothing elegant or even complex.
    • Taste

      Does what it should, a good malt, beautiful composition. As I said, a rather "modern" malt, which, due to its barrel composition, may be more reminiscent of a fresh finish than of a "full maturation".
      Certainly an option for fans of fruity fruit gum malts - but only at the issue price ...
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium length without new moments ..

      Overall, a very direct sweet malt, to chew away easily ...

  6. LDB scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A youthful Arran who comes across as relatively dignified.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Fruit syrup, yellow and red gummy bears, pineapple candy, as well as spicy-fresh coastal aromas with pine resin. Straightforward, but good at it.
    • Taste
      87 87
      A bit racy and artificial, but many of the delicious aromas from the nose are carried on, even if not very complex.
      With a little water it wins and becomes a little more harmonious and caramelized.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Tannic and gone relatively quickly.
      With a little water, the citrus-heavy distillery character becomes more apparent.

    Oily, but the legs are of medium thickness. Bourbon expression is perfectly revealed with water.
    But the whisky was not surprising, I expected more from the festival release.

  9. Svarttt scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The nose is something very arbitrary.
    Appears quite young, then stronger in the mouth with a little spice from the barrel and the finish is comparatively long.
