- very rich, peat, smoke, sweeeet
- I picked it up today after the sample had been open in a box for years, maybe the air helped, but I think it is better than I remembered it, now not a candidate for purchase, but nothing that I would reject as a dram, very tasty
grassy, fresh, lovely, lemon, something like yogurt, creamy, a spoonful of honey, if you know it, you will also find light spicy smoke, but the fresh citrus note dominates, biscuit dough, mango-passion fruit yogurt from Landliebe, but really 1 to 1, all in all quite pleasant actually
Creamy, vanilla, burnt cookie dough, caramel, rather overripe and sweet mango, very malty, also here at first subtle smoke, a dash of orange
here then the first time unmistakably smoke, ashy and dry, the cookie dough remains, the fruit becomes more sour, a little salt on the tip of the tongue, very pleasant
- Arran's work with peat whisky is incomplete, halfway through, and Arran fans and peat aficionados can't be happy
Peat is not dominant; fruit first: fresh green apple, peach, maybe an apricot, a little orange; peat passes separately, its salinity and minerality are not similar to the Ailov peat; whimsical, but not bright.
The smoke is felt distinctly; here is vanilla and green apple; forbs; in general, not bad, but the spirituality makes it difficult to concentrate and finish the picture.
And here is the trouble: the aftertaste is short, bitter; a little spice and salt; the smoke and fruit disappeared quickly, as did the bitterness.
- Of all the variety of Arran releases, I single out for myself two important groups: budgetary wine finishes, missing stars from heaven, but for their moderate price, they provide worthy quality and more interesting and high-quality one-shot releases of which (until everything that I could try was very good) , but for a different price, and between them there is a lot of incomprehensible, from this section and our today's patient. This sample, apparently, is designed to maximally expand the range of releases of the distillery and climb the peat plot, which from the point of view of management is generally understandable. As a result, something out of the ordinary happened, it was not possible to carry a horse and a quivering doe in one cart, as they say, separately, it would have turned out much better, the ingredients are good, especially the bright and juicy wine-flower line, peat and smoke, .
Light, airy, first wine nose - field flowers, white wine, peaches, lemon, light minerality; then manifested smoke and peat - light and moist, peat water, coal. The whole picture does not work, wine and peat do not merge into a single whole, like water and oil.
Again, a mixture of the Arran base with the introduced phenols, here it is already better, something more or less solid begins to emerge, honey-floral notes with a slight mineral flavor alternate with smoky and peaty motifs, peppery wave, coal, charred wood, honey sweetness, toffee - No, still confused and irritated.
Quite empty, light smoke-peat hues against the background of honey-fruit sweetness and cream, not to say that here it was possible to cross Arran with peat, most likely all were exhausted and tired.
- A bit less sweet than the 2nd edition, more salty. It scores better than the first two releases, but I actually score it a bit lower.
Peach, peat, salt, orange, malt and wood dust.
Peat, salt, peach, orange and vanilla.
Salt, peach, peat, orange, vanilla sugar and barley.
- Interesting presentation and limited, unique tasting, with a faint nose, a faint color, a faint body, a faint finish,
All this weakness for a rare, subtle, balanced and complex initial taste.
Very nice, rare and interesting whisky to have, to taste, and to compare.
- First I was disappointed, Now I'm looking forward to find some slightly peated, complex earth&isle alliance. Its nice to put some shades in a collection
sulfur, peat, faint
Very good, very subtle, but short, medicinal, herbal, organic, dry, sulfured and a hint of salt and peat smoke,
lying on a malty classic bed (excuse my french)
then come the spiciness and the bitterness
short, spiciness and bitterness quickly dying with the memory of a unique and subtle tasting experience.
- Beautiful whisky.
- Prima whisky that is worth the purchase.
Fresh scent where the Bourboncask can distinguish well.
Peach, pineapple and coconut.
In addition to the peach and pineapple, the peated element also stays well in the mouth / throat. Pretty nice.
