    The nose was quite friendly and almost docile for such a high strength whisky, but the palate of the Arran Sherry Cask more than made up for it. Lots of spices and less of that fresh fruitiness and almost floral quality. Almost a little too much.
    • Nose
      Sweet, gentle, citrus-y sherry notes, meaning there's a freshness and crispness here that's really enjoyable. It doesn't nose very engineered or overtly young. Subtle notes of raisins, red apples, figs and dried grass. Light floral touches too. More balanced than many other sherry matured official bottlings at a similar pricepoint.
    • Taste
      Decent fatty texture, but a little less subtle now. Big, spicy arrival. Lots of ginger, pepper and cloves. Warming oak, raisins and milk chocolate are there in a supporting role.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices, tannins and a touch of sweetened coffee.
