  5. Snerik scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    The nose is a lot more expressive and engaging than the actual taste. But still a nice dram. 
    • Nose
      Some cacao, honey, cookie dough, raisins. Some hints of good quality tobacco. Pleasant. 
    • Taste
      Some cacao bitters (lovely), dates, tobacco and some smoke. It’s a really sherried whisky this one. 
    • Finish
      Honey, that bitter cacao note and bitter oranges.

  7. Monsieur Dram scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A well-designed, complex and multifaceted dram. Not easy to apprehend, it is nonetheless pleasant to drink. Too bad it misses a little surprise!
    • Nose
      Alcoholic and malty ... Seems to need to open a few minutes. Fresh mint, lemon, meringue. A zest of orange blossom. It is rather pleasant even if the alcohol is a little disturbing. Cashew nuts. Spices, yellow fruits, dried fruits, aromatic herbs. A pretty rich profile rather interesting. A little milk chocolate. Citrus and spicy with the opening. A bit of tobacco and chocolate.
    • Taste
      Sweet, on the wall fruit, vanilla, bitter dark chocolate, pepper. It's rather complex. Notes of ginger, cinnamon and a hint of smoke. It's well designed by Arran.
    • Finish
      Alcoholic, on spices, mint and chocolate. Persistent and fresh.

  8. deleo07 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Malty, even a little smokeyness.

    Tasty dram, but there are better Arran's out there.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose: Dried fruit and wood spices with notes of mocha and tobacco leaf.
    Palate: Vanilla, mixed nuts, juicy prunes, dried papaya and chocolate liqueurs.
    Finish: Caramel, cocoa and earthy winter spices.
    Overall: Dark and mysterious, but all good.

  10. Ivynor scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    I should have known that it was an arran with green apple notes. It is however less "fresh" than other arran, but more creamy. OK, but nothing more. Price abused
    • Nose
      Blind tested.

      Green apple, notes a little medicinal but very indented (drugs, compress, adhesive plaster, synthol ...)
    • Taste
      Very sweet, a little creamy. Always the green apple. Well integrated alcohol
    • Finish
      Medium, stewed fruit
