      Much smoother now, red fruits, prunes. Some honey. A little bitter note underneath. Middle long finish, with some black berries. Later on finish gets longer on a tingling mouthfeel with taste of berries.

  8. 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.
