This lesser-known whisky from the Isle of Arran takes you on a fascinating journey of smell and taste. A tropical fruit basket with papaya, mango, pineapple and melon awaits the nose, enriched by aromatic spices, honey and cereals. It's quite complex! After an intense and citrusy arrival, the taste evolves floral and gingery with hints of sage, coriander and fructose. The oak kicks in nicely, leading to a robust and chocolaty bitter finish. For a mid-aged Single Malt, Arran 14 is really hitting the spot. It's a big event, an excellent value and highly recommended!
