  1. Marcel74 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Beautiful whisky that is beautifully balanced with the distillery character and the cask influence.. but neither dominates
    • Nose
      The smell of this whisky is already layered and beautifully balanced, you can clearly smell the influences of the distillery… barley sugars and fruit, candies, oranges and bananas and some tropical fruits, in the background the sherry influences can be discerned.. raisins, figs dates
    • Taste
      The taste is wonderfully creamy and pungent.. the taste of tropical fruits and barley returns, but the sherry influences of the barrel are also beautifully interwoven here.. toffee, raisins, figs, dates and chocolate
    • Finish
      The aftertaste is sweet from the fruit which turns into some herbs .. the mouthfeel lasts a long time

  2. Ruisdael scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    One of the best Arrans I've tasted so far. Beautiful nose, super mouth-filling pallet and powerful, slightly spicy aftertaste that lingers for a long time. Truly a fantastic whisky!

  3. Dramming Dutchman scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Lovely whisky with a nose full of fruit, a mouth full of taste and a long spicy finish. A thank a friend for sharing a 6cl sample so I can taste this beauty twice...
