  3. Bishlouk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A young whisky consistent, nice, well made (as usual at Arran). I was expecting malt more present in a whisky of this age, it is nothing (and that's good); which "ages" this Arran. The only downsides, in my opinion, are spices and alcohol too much present at times (but it's quite bearable). The nose is particularly nice.
    • Nose
      A nice fruity typical of the distillery, on the just cut apple, a light lemon, and a fine smoke of dry pear peel.
    • Taste
      Sweet and friendly, accessible. Always on the autumn fruit, apple in mind. A little plum and lemon; but also a pinch of salt and a handful of sweet spices.
    • Finish
      Long. On swallowing, Williams Pear suddenly appeared, followed by a dry apple peel. A thin trail of salt in its wake.
