  1. alectron scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Unusual Arran but still with hints of the typical character.
    • Nose
      Vanilla +/o, fresh white/green grapes o, malt but atypically for Arran with a somewhat bitter/savoury tough o, mineral (shower-scrub-stone-thingies, sand, granite ) o, hay & farmy o/-, preserved fruits (pears in cinnamon & star-anis) o/-, tobacco o/-, even a touch of smoke -, (87)
    • Taste
      more savoury malt & preserved fruits +, quite a bit of salt too +/o, meat-y/roast (85)

      W Water: stark contrast, now typically sweet & malty
    • Finish
      medium length, drying with some pleasant fruity malt notes inbetween o, white chocolate o/-. (84)

      W Water: again sweeter & more towards Arran malty
