  5. Bishlouk scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Instead of going crescendo, this Arran tends to pique ahead during dram. Starting with a superb nose, we move to a classic mouth (for this kind of whisky), to finish with a woody too present. Even if the whole form a good Arran Arran (as usual at Arran, I would like to say), I remain a little on my hunger.
    • Nose
      Corinthian grapes, liquid caramel, orangetta, a very fine hazelnut smoke. Christmas spices develop, accompanied by milk chocolate praline. A beautiful nose, of course influenced by the Sherry, but also (and especially) quite atypical and rustic.
    • Taste
      Brown sugar, caramel, liquid honey. Apricot, pressed orange, some peppery spices. A hint of black tea, blackcurrant, and nuts.
    • Finish
      Dry wood is needed and supplants what the mouth had brought, which is swept at once. This change is abrupt and unexpected. Past this woodland, a mentholated ripple refreshes the palate, and some residual sweet spices appear.
