    very unusual Arran. but maybe this is a real Arran and all the other are just too much influenced by the casks. I like that unique very spicy aroma. some drops of water and he opens like a flower.

    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Pale mustard
    Flavour: Spicy & sweet The nose seemed like an entire meal on one plate – chip shop
    wrappers, brown sugar-glazed ham and marmite on toast, followed by syrup
    sponge, stewed rhubarb and sticky toffee pudding; mainly sweet and savoury but
    with less obvious aromas of grass, gloss paint, car wax, Calmac ferries and
    Alpen muesli hiding behind. The palate had the same sweet-savoury duality –
    Marshmallows, Danish pastries and vanilla bonbons along-side roast beef gravy
    and honey-glazed parsnips – but now its spicy character became agreeably
    obvious (cinnamon toast, nutmeg, sweet chilli flavoured crisps). An enjoyable
    dram that got our juices flowing and made us feel hungry.

    Drinking tip: Perfect whisky to cradle in your mitt while
    waiting for the Sunday roast.
