    • Nose
      Rich. Initially fruity followed by a vegetal note that develops. Dust. Sweet syrup. Over time the vegetal note develops into more fruit. These are what I would describe as high pitched notes. I get something close to green apple (a glenfiddichy property). Interestingly, with air time alone, the nose then becomes muted again and the vegetal note returns.
    • Taste
      First sip is sour and fruity, with none of the vegetal note of the nose. Subsequently it is hotter, spicier. I get vanilla, sour apple. It is fairly sweet. A little bitterness in the development (peppery as opposed to unpleasant).
    • Finish

  5. Hobbit did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    That was nothing. Too young, too sprightly. The nose is the best
    • Nose
      Immediately strong vanilla and creamy caramel notes, yellow apple, the 57% are noticeable but acceptable, decent lemon, butterscotch, pear, tangerine peel, bay leaf
    • Taste
      Again, vanilla, alcohol and youth are very noticeable here, caramel, distinct citrus notes, peach, sugar, young pear, white pepper
    • Finish
      minimal oak, less vanilla, lemon, orange, here he is quite rass / scratchy

    Wow. He is violent. You only notice the "youth" in the taste and on the finish.
    • Nose
      He has this typical Arran character with fruity Äpfeön and a snotty-maritime island breeze. Add a touch of salt. For 8 years and 57% the alcohol is really well integrated.
    • Taste
      In taste then a lot of geteide and lemon. Now the alcohol is fully there. There must be water on it first.
      With water the nose fades a little bit.
    • Finish
      In the finish, the alcohol is still very heavy despite the water. The finish is spicy and again there are grains and lemon. Again, this maritime touch.

  7. Ivynor scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    We find Arran well, but this whisky is too young and the alcohol not very well integrated.
    • Nose
      Very fresh, but a little alcoholic, on the green apple, the pear. first nose a little vinegary, goes away with aeration.
    • Taste
      Fruit alcohol, made very young. Apple, pear, the first attack in the mouth is sweet with a thick texture but it lasts less than a second. Sour notes, sour cherry, traces of cocoa. Alcohol moderately integrated.
    • Finish
      dry, a little sweet, earth and bitter herbs.

  8. Pépé scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    A whisky calm on the nose that takes a nice turn in the mouth. A very good Q / P.
    • Nose
      Quite restrained, not necessarily very intense but "cute". A lot of chocolate, apple, hazelnut. Slightly fruity. Pretty malty.
    • Taste
      Good surprise in the mouth, quite strong and ample attack. It's sweet, chocolate and especially a lot more fruit. Fruits more cooked than raw. A little more wooded towards the final.
    • Finish
      Rather short.

  9. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    The nose is dominated by grassy notes and oak, with water bringing out some additional orchard fruits. Hot and fiery on the palate without water. Water revealed a mix of sweet berries and fiery pepper, leading to a long spicy finish (tempered by a nice creamy aspect at the very end).

  10. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Water needed, 57% is to powerful.
    • Nose
      Neat: Very strong nose, sweet rubber. Water: The water brings the oak, pear and grass aromas to the surface.
    • Taste
      Neat: Powerful taste. Fruity and with some flowery notes. Water: More oak, and spicy.
    • Finish
      Neat: Long and peppery finish. Water: Medium long finish, oaky and still very peppery.
