  1. rottendon scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    That can be anything again, the barrel dominates so much here. According to the fresh fruit and the pudding in the nose, I would conclude that there is a finish here, probably a modern wet finish. All in all round, easy to drink and zero recognition value.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    I say yes, youngster, wet barrel, but I would have expected a much higher alcohol content. Young alcohol is just rough.

      Very Sherry, right from the start! Difficult, it seems more on the spicy side, with sweet dried fruits definitely also being present. After a while, the almost fruit are gone, what remains is a clean mixture of barrel acid and sherry flavor. Old cellar, tobacco, pickled vegetables. Warmth brings more acidity and now also fresh fruit notes, apples or something. Next to it now intensely dried apricots. A creamy pudding note is added.
    • Taste
      85 85
      It starts sweet and heavy, a lot of dark honey, before the alcohol comes in quite powerfully and brings distinct spice and a dash of tannins with it. Barrel acid begins to dominate towards the rear.
    • Finish
      86 86
      In the finish, it warms up for a long time and dries significantly in the process. In the end, however, a heavy sweetness lasts the longest. When this is finally gone, the mouth feels refreshed and cool, so there was menthol there too, although I hadn't really noticed it now.

    Delicious sherry flavors. Warming fullness in the mouth with lots of fruit and sherry sweetness. A little more bourbon influence would have given the whisky that certain something. Well integrated alcohol. Unfortunately quite short, young-looking finish.

  5. VISION_CHEN scored this whisky 62 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Very clear chocolate, and raisins in the chocolate, elegant red wood, some lacquer to be found, more like a nail shop smell, plus some musty smell. The expressiveness of the aroma is at a medium level, and the alcohol sense is still very obvious.

    Drink: The body is very good, the taste is some syrup made from herbs, the other part is a spicy taste reminiscent of spices, and the end is a bit bitter, the process is rich and stressful.

    Overall: The flavor of this Sherry Cask is very familiar and very niche, but I can't really recall details about this Sherry Cask, as if Arran has a product that is very similar to it. I didn't like the smell (even if it was, I only deducted 6 points for the aroma, the real reason for the low score was its lackluster).

    Blind I would have guessed a good a‘ bunadh batch. Fruity, jammy and yummy!

  15. jay83 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Really suprising. The alcohol is not as intense as expected. Really nice notes of dried and preserved domestic fruits. Decent "earthiness". Nice intensity of the sherry influence (really good tuned) and consistently sweet. Really quaffable and good price for value. Appears to be older than the actual age...
