  1. Andytka3 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    N- Concentrated nutmeg, almond, orange and vanilla at high strength.  Oozing with stickiness on aroma.  All are nice on it's own.  Leaning towards component, but more than decent.  

    P- Spirit-y, spicy liquorice with tinge of salted smoke meat.  Pickled ginger,  toffee, chocolate with drift of white oak.  

    F- Medium-long, coarse wood with sugar, cherry sweet distillate with oak honey liquorice, ultra modern.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    On the nose, it's fresh right away! then vanilla, lemon, apple, humus, fresh grass and spicy malt!
    On the palate, lemon fruits, spices, some dry wood, more exotic fruits (coconut mix, oranges, pineapple), and some iodine.
    In the final, simple, rather average on the same aromas, small disappointment because the nose allowed to imagine more beautiful things!
    A dram that falls a little for lack of depth, which suggests more than it gives, with a few more years, would melt!
    good dram anyway!
    • Nose
      lemon, vanilla, green apple, spices and a pronounced floral side, it sounds fresh but also a little waxy.

  10. Goethe scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Quite enjoyable Arran only bottled in 1st Fill American Oak Ex-Bourbon Barrels. This kind of single maturation should be taken more often into the portfolio of any distillery.Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10
    • Nose
      Oranges, yellow fruits, honey, vanilla, some ripe apples and lemon.
    • Taste
      Oranges, yellow fruits, toffee, lemon, honey, vanilla, apples.
    • Finish
      Medium. Apples with some spicy oakiness in the mix with oranges and chocolate.
