  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nice Arran, no more, no less.
    • Nose
      The nose holds the middle between fruity and malty. I have loads of apples and pears on the one hand, on the other the crust of white bread. Next to that, a hint of marzipan. Barely any spices, except some camphor. Soft and accessible. Reminds me a bit of muesli.
    • Taste
      Wonderfully creamy body, though. Bittersweet on white fruit and pink grapefruit, zesty and now mildly spicy. Think white pepper, camphor and some liquorice. Ginger too. Quite nice.
    • Finish
      Go ahead and call this a long finish, on more of the same, but a bit drying towards the end.

    Peach, bread, fruit muesli - with water more yellow fruits, fruit cake on sponge cake, but also wood glue - long finish
    absolutely requires water and long ventilation
