    N- Citrus fruit, juicy starfruits pear and peaches. Distant ashes smokes.Saline sea sand.

    P- Tree branches, pleasant weight. Floral and citrus infused liqueur. Lightly spirity. F- Short-medium, fragrant floral again, with touchy spicy notes popping

    Good value for money! Tasted 22/01/2016 in an Arran line-up. 
    • Nose
      Lots of spices, very floral as well. Kind of honied vanilla, pina colada-ish. Hints of red berries. 
    • Taste
      Quite full-bodied, vanilla with spices, ginger, wood. It bites a bit; it's a little rough on the edges which is a pity. 
    • Finish
      Medium finish which turns woody and later on a tad sour (green apples).

  8. Shane_IL scored this whisky 74 points Expert Senior

    Not a bad sipper, but lacks in complexity and depth. The 10yo is so much better for not much more money.
    • Nose
      Young spirit bite, needs a few minutes to calm down. Signature Arran candied fruits and floral notes. Coconut shavings. Pina colada mix. White wine tannins. Ripe pears. Creamy porridge. Orange zest. 
    • Taste
      Light fruits. Wild flowers. Candied pineapple. Syrup from canned fruit. Mild hints of bitter wood and spice (paprika). 
    • Finish
      Medium-long. Dry wine tannins and fruit. Bitter wood. Woodspice.
