  2. El Bastardo scored this whisky 60 points Member Senior

    Solid and very drinkable. Almost too good. An 18 should be and remain a pure pleasure drop. You shouldn't even think that you could really lose a lot of it. Somehow it is already too drinkable and socially acceptable, almost "mainstream".
    That doesn't make him bad now, on the contrary, but also not really with much profound personality.
    • Nose
      Dominantly sweet. Primarily sugar-sweet, only then in the later course it also becomes a little fruity-sweet. If you have survived the dominant sugar wall and your nose has gotten used to the smell, the first oak bitter notes come towards you. Aromatic mild and not spicy and unpleasant. In addition, subtle vanilla tones.
    • Taste
      Bitter at first. Such a mixture of oak and cocoa (chocolate). Then the sweet notes kicked in. From then on there is an interplay between bitter and sweet. With the second sip it also gets a bit sour.
    • Finish
      Slightly bitter, slightly sour.

  8. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A very good addition to Arran's core range, and still reasonably priced!
    • Nose
      Plum, peach, apple, butter candy, mocha-flavoured whipped cream, vanilla, pineapple and a little leather.
    • Taste
      Peach, plum, vanilla, pineapple and caramel. Tads of porridge, leather and smoke.
    • Finish
      Peach, apple, caramel, plum, vanilla, mocha, malt, ginger and smoke.
