    At the time I was a bit skeptical. Now I regret that I did not buy this NAS Arran. A nice complex Arran.

      A fresh whisky, dried fruit, vanilla, spicy, oak, with a bit of peat smoke in the background.

    The DPB are really a great series, you can drink again and again, much better than the Smuggler's.

    • Nose
      N: all’inizio l’alcol ha bisogno di sfogarsi nel bicchiere: diamogli un po’ di tempo. Rieccoci dopo dieci minuti: ora è più espressivo, con nitide note di prugne secche, e in generale di quei mix di frutta disidratata (prugne, uvetta, banana, cocco…); frutti di bosco, poi (lamponi e fragole). Anice stellato e chicchi di caffè. In ossequio alla complessità del naso, si sentono anche note che rivelano la componente ex-bourbon, quindi note caramellose, zuccherine, vanigliate. Panettone? Note di cioccolato. Arancia (forse marmellata di arancia).
    • Taste
      P: molto compatto, un vero muro di sapore, ma dipinto di mille colori. Da un malto biscottato a una leggera liquirizia, da sfavillanti frutti rossi (un vero tripudio, sia freschi che marmellata) a prugne secche, da un legno rotondo a una bella frutta secca… Davvero squisito, pieno di sfaccettature seppure molto compatto, come detto. Buon corpo, molto cremoso. Merita anche di essere assaggiato con un paio di gocce d’acqua, che ne esaltano le componenti agrumate (arancia fresca). Che buono. Zenzero candito, sul finale, leggermente pepatino.
    • Finish
      F: oltre ai frutti rossi, ecco note di burro fresco molto intense. Diciamo: una fetta biscottata, imburrata e con marmellata ai frutti rossi. Molto persistente, lungo, intenso.
