  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm 4/5
    • Nose
      Big sherry with prunes, blackberries. And he is gaining power, the animal! Fragrant, vigorous and juicy nothing but the nose. More and more sweet. With a little water, malt and nuts.
    • Taste
      We find these sensations in the mouth with creamy but also, relief, vivacity and dynamism thanks to its young age.
    • Finish
      Intense, long and persistent.

    TASTING NOTE LMDW Particularly solar and luminous, this Arran is also crossed by very numerous and very refreshing shaded areas. True oases, they play a vital role in its balance and give it a lot of maturity and complexity. The delicious perfumes of rose petals and juicy figs escaping from the empty glass transport us to the Orient, of which they are a vibrant testimony.
    Profile: expressive, it becomes gradually liquorice and camphor. The influence of sherry wine highlights a very pleasant salinity. Color: orange copper with green hues. Nose: rich, complex. Subtle blend of sweetness and firmness, the first nose oscillates between dried fruits (figs, currants) and noble spices (cardamom, star anise). Expressive, it gradually becomes liquorice and camphor. At the same time, candied citrus fruits appear (orange, grapefruit). Increasingly, the influence of sherry wine highlights a very pleasant salinity, while providing a lot of rhythm. Palate: lively, firm. Citrus fruit, stewed fruit (peach, plum) and dried fruits (prune, date) make the attack evolve in the mouth to become more and more mellow. Dark chocolate and some spices follow suit with harmony before the slightest gap of the palate is covered with heather honey. The back mouth offers us to smell bouquets of rose and peony. Final: long, silky. Its touch evokes the soft roughness of the skin of a white peach. In perfect symbiosis with the nose and mouth, its velvety tannins coat the taste buds while exotic fruits (guava, persimmon) make it exuberant. Retro-olfaction is marked by tobacco and zan. The empty glass is finely wooded and roasted (coffee).
