  1. fritzbrause scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    wonderful typical Arran. very well chosen by the SMWS tasting panel. loads of aromas in the nose. even more on the palate. one one the BEST Arran I had so far. try this if you want to get an typical Arran dram.

  2. Zumbar scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    I was never a fan of Arran. This one is no exception. But if you like normal Arran, you will probably love this one, and shouldn't consider my score at the slightest :)

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Straw gold                                   

    Flavour profile: Juicy, Oak & Vanilla

    Enticing, inviting, warm, rich and like ‘walking barefoot on hot sand’ were the initial comments nosing neat. Descriptors given; hot crumpets with runny honey, waffles with golden syrup and buttered popcorn. The taste had the rich sweetness of a chocolate éclair sprinkled with nutmeg whilst in the finish, surprisingly dry. Water added aromas of wood and spice, a well-used wooden rolling pin as well as warm hot cross buns with a slightly waxy mouthfeel of a chamois leather cloth. The overall effect is now charming, innocent and very moreish –don’t we all like licking the wooden spoon after making cakes?

    Drinking tip: A quickie whenever the opportunity arises
