    Very tasty

  4. Achany scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    dark berries, dried dark fruit, some hints of dark chocolate, malty and sweet, influence of oak is strong but well done. Fine complex, sherry malt, really well balanced.

    Arran on sherry cask works every time! 

    (Rating interval 86-88)
    • Nose
      Soft spices, some leather and sour plums. Syrup and instant coffee appear after a while, some fresh fruit black berry and peaches. 
    • Taste
      The arrival is warm and sweet with mixed fruit. The fruit starts to branch in the development, towards sweet apples, prunes and raisins. It is also rather spicy, pink pepper, nutmeg  and cinnamon I believe.
    • Finish
      The finish is warm with black pepper, sour fruit and some icing sugar. Nutmeg is the last note to disappear.
