3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.50 points

  1. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Leather, some sulpher, orange and fudge.
    • Taste
      Sluphur, orange, fruity - yellow fruits and pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium drying with spices - pepper and tobacco leafs.

  2. Noface83 scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    Nose: Very multi-layered nose that needs a little bit of time and demands. First oak and bourbon aromas are in the nose. You could almost think the good guy is a bourbon. But then fight a beautiful malt sweetness and brown apples in the foreground. The whole thing is caressed by spices and some tannins (sour notes from the oak).
    Taste: Full and spicy on the mouth (the alcohol pushes). Almost peppery spicy. Once the palate has grown accustomed to it, a fruit candy explodes in the mouth. Apples and bright apricots with vanilla sugar. In the finish, the sweetness reaches its peak and is then accompanied by spicy oak in a long finish.

    Conclusion: Great Arran with an unprecedented combination of spicy oak and overly sweetened fruit.

    Yes, a really good choice of cask.
    • Nose
      Apple pie with cinnamon and currants. Vanilla and lime. A spicy touch as well, a bit like curry. 
    • Taste
      Really spicy: Pepper and cinnamon. Then also a strong fruitiness like apple and apricot, plus again some vanilla.
    • Finish
      Lime, peach, vanilla, pepper, almond and an unexpected meaty twist.
