  2. Bishlouk scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Another very good Arran! Decidedly, I think this distillery offers first fill Sherry interesting in all respects. And this one is very changeable and evolutive, especially on the nose.
    • Nose
      A dried fruit smoke very present, but it calms quickly enough (to return later) and leaves room for dry tobacco, black tea, exotic spices, nut shell, and candied red fruits. Caramelized pear compote appears after aeration.
    • Taste
      A slight winey acidulous entry of mouth. Caramelized apple, then the brown sugar, dry wood, lemon zest, tobacco and Chinese green tea. Many things jostle to form a rich and complex mouth.
    • Finish
      The dry wood is dominant, bringing with it drought. The heat increases, sprinkled with a pinch of peppery spices. Raisin as a backdrop.
