Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Getreide, etwas Vanille & Banane, ein bisschen Heu und trockene Küchenkräuter, ein Hauch weißer Pfeffer... nicht zu scharf oder verschlossen, aber ich habe den Eindruck, da könnte ein Tropfen Wasser helfen: wird einerseits cremiger, vanilliger, weiße Schokolade, andererseits aber auch kurzzeitig schärfer, der weiße Pfeffer wird intensiver, ein Spritzer Zitrone kommt dazu... dann wird's wieder grüner, Melonenschale, frische grüne Bohnen, Heu

Taste

knusprig, keksig, getreidig... Spritzgebäck, Vanillekipferl, etwas Honig, gebräuntes Toast, dazu wieder weißer Pfeffer, mit Wasser schimmern noch leicht bittere Zitrusnoten durch, Grapefruit, Limette, und Salatgurke/Melonenschale

Finish

lang, warm, trocken, irgendwie hell-würzig, der weiße Pfeffer und das Getreide klingen nach, die bitteren Zitrusnoten sind auch noch da

Comments

Auf den ersten Schluck (nur) ein lecker-keksig-robuster Getreidewhisky, wenn man nur etwas weiter hineinschnuppert und -kostet wird's dann mit den Zitrus-, Grünzeug- und Kräuternoten richtig interessant, für um die 50-60€ war das damals 'ne tolle Flasche.

Color
Old gold
Nose

weniger malzig als gedacht, aber doch ist das Aroma vorhanden; frischer Grasschnitt mit ein wenig Schnittlauch, leicht süßlich, Vanille, Birne und andere helle saftige Früchte, gelbe Äpfel; mit der Zeit weicht der Schnittlauch und macht Platz für noch mehr Apfel

Taste

helle Äpfel und nässende Früchte (vor allem helle), würzig, etwas Eiche und ein Hauch Tee

Finish

mittellang mit einem ewig langen Nachhall auf der Zunge; malzig, würzig und kräftig, wärmend, die Fruchtnoten wiederholen sich auch hier, ein wenig salzig und schokoladig

N: Fresh fruity! Aromatich but not alcoholic. Next to the fruity there's a grassy touch, like mown wet grass. Not too sweet but mainly the freshness dominates.

T: The taste doesn't keep up with the nose. Water improves it a bit, but still not on par... The tastes are in the same line as the nose.

F: Short, clean and dry.

C: Not spectacular. The nose is very promising, if only the palette and finish could keep on par... Tastes like too much water was added, only there’s still the alcoholic kick. I won't buy a bottle...

I like Arran whisky in general, but this is an outstanding dram. Worth a try...

Color
Pale straw
Nose

Straf, droog, beetje zweetsok, gekookte andijvie, rabarber. Later ook grastonen. 

Taste

Eerste slok… niet best! Daarna beter: kruidig en eerst weer die gekookte andijvie, dan vanille en een sinaasappeltje. 

Finish

Blijft lang voorin verhemelte hangen waarbij zurigheid naar voren komt, gevolgd door een bittertje. 

Comments

Tasted during a blind tasting competition in June 2015. I scored on the low side because it tasted "off", in my opinion. When the bottle was revealed it became clear to me that was due to the bere barley.
