  1. Kensay scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A light citrus whisky for a warm spring evening. I don't understand why, but it seemed to me much easier than the release from the same barrel wb164863. Overexposed?
    • Nose
      89 89
      Butter cream, pickles or pickles, light smoke, citruses and ripe yellow fruits. It seems like a strange set, but very dignified and harmonious
    • Taste
      88 88
      Lemon juice, some smoked fish, olive oil and coal dust
    • Finish
      88 88
      Smoke citruses and cream, long enough and gentle

  3. vlad78 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Light, as if soaring, played on high notes of whisky.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Vanilla, fruity (yellow apple, apricot, duchesse) and citrus tones, a little candied fruit. All this breeze blows in the face, however, periodically receding.
    • Taste
      87 87
      The same profile on the palate: light and delicate, but quite simple.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Sweet like lollipops, medium length.

    don't ask why, but today from the sample this whisky is somehow different, not at all the same as half a barrel for Scotch88, ok, you have to try again on occasion...

  5. Yarema scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Great Whisky that I don't even want to describe. We drank together with our Ukrainian brothers the first bottling. And everything has already been said. The only difference is that in this bottle it is felt that the barrel has stood and breathed thus in the first nose you can immediately hear notes of smoke (coal fumigation of the barrel).

    A very atypical Arran. Layered and complex, still quite smoky. He will surprise you. 91
