Nosing: SherryDried FruitOrangeMint
Immediately comes across as a sherry cask whisky, however it is a lot more rounded and less bright than many younger sherried malts. Lots of dried fruit and orange zest. There is also a slight minty menthol type note buried in there.

Taste: CaramelGinger
Full bodied. Measured arrival, not too sweet. Has a thick, almost oily texture. Intense treacle and dark sugar flavours. Jamaican ginger cake.

Finish: OakOrange
Long and intense. Oakiness starts to come foward. Residual orange flavours.

Comment:
This is a real beast of a malt. The flavour intensity is excellent throughout. Deinitely one to look out for.

Nosing: Lovely mix of sherry and bourbon cask influence on the nose - brown sugar, light fruit cake, vanilla, faint milk chocolate.

Taste: A subtly complex sherry-malt flavour profile with a faint milk chocolate-orange note. Slight hint of peppermint. The 18 years of cask influence has matured this into an effortlessly lingering and elegant spirit.

Finish: Mouth-watering, long and rewarding.


Comment: A slight dash of water makes this mouth watering malt even juicier. Although great in either, I would recommend this malt in a tumbler with a nice large singular ice cube rather than in a Glencairn glass.

Non-chill filtered and non-coloured at 46%ABV, hats off to The Arran for producing whiskey the way it ought to be.
