  1. Kaleva scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Quite strange whisky, feels rather young and underdeveloped as for 12-year-old. It lacks balance, pretty sharp on full strength and doesn't get much smoother with water. Definitely not a best buy.
    • Nose
      Sharp, malty, green apple, metallic notes, vanilla touch, developing sweetness, a bit smoky, some pear notes after adding water
    • Taste
      Oak, spices, a bit sweet, walnut
    • Finish
      Medium-long, very dry, malty, nutty, slightly bitter

    a decent dram perhaps a tad too expensive
    • Nose
      I find it rather malty, would have expected the fruit to be the dominating component. freshly baked croissants with a good amount of butter, malt candies, baked apples, tinned peaches
    • Taste
      quite sweet and lovely malty with danish pastries, apples again and some vanilla.
    • Finish
      medium to long, still malty

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt



    Nose: A good dose of sea spray, followed by the sweet notes of maple syrup and tropical fruits.
    Palate: Oily and mouth coating, with green apples and hints of dark chocolate and coffee beans.
    Finish: Succulent dark cherries followed by an amazing duo of cinnamon and nutmeg.
    Overall: Another cracking Arran Malt.
