Nose: So sweet and hedonistic : absolutely fantastic. Apples in honey. Sweet malt. Apple pie with fresh dough crust. And a bit of chocolate. so perfumed ! As fine as they get, before even trying the palate.
Palate: Lovely sweet nectar: honey. Malt, spiced oak. Candied ginger and then some chocolate covered with caramel and Crème Brule. Wow.
Finish: Dark chocolate sprinkled with Raisins and a lovely oaky finish too.
This one is in my opinion the best Arran I have tried to date (I’ve tried quite a few, but not all OBs). If you’re into sweeter malts you are going to LOVE it, but again, if you do not like too much chocoalte honey and sweet notes in your dram, then better look elsewhere. Brilliant after dinner dram that will go great with desert, and Ice cream. Well done. Can’t wait for the 18 yo version. Good work folks.
