  5. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Interesting, young Arran, beside the wine with massive oaky and spicy flavors.
    • Nose
      Matured fruits, vanilla, wines, spicy oak and mint.
    • Taste
      Bittersweet and spicy. Milk caramel, forest fruits, citruses and ginger orange juice. Nutella and raisin.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, bittersweet.

    I didn't like this at all. Maybe because of all the awesome whisky that I tasted before this one. We'll never know. Especially the balance was completely off IMHO.

      Oaky, fruity red wine. Demerara sugar, salty liquorice

       on the background, vanilla. Interesting, nice combination!
    • Taste
      quite sweet, red wine, vanilla, cherries, circus. Nice combination with the alcohol level. 
    • Finish
      Long sweet finish.
