  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Maybe my expectations were a little too high? Only the
    nose was really pleasant. On the palate and especially in the finish, it left a
    lot to be desired.
    • Nose
      The nose is very sweet on maple syrup, sweet malt and
      Ricola herb candy; then it evolves towards lemon grass and roasted nuts. Just a
      tad spirity. Adding water offers up more grain, but also something farmy.
    • Taste
      It turns very hot and dry pretty quickly upon arriving
      in the mouth, no doubt from the champagne. Yep, it even turns mildly sour from
      the wine. Loads of tannins as well. The mildly sweet character of Arran is
      completely pushed away, which is a pity. A teaspoon of water does not make
      things swell.
    • Finish
      The long finish is very dry and spicy and makes me
      pull a face.
