Arran 12 yo Cask Strength Batch 4, 53,2 %

This is a mix of bourbon and sherry casks. The smell is great. Filled with lemongrass, pears, dates, honey and slightly minty. A great mix of the bourbon and sherry influence.

The taste is dark and a bit flat at first. There is very heavy wood influence as well. The finish is long with dark dried fruits and fruity sweetness.

The balance is a bit off due to the taste. Otherwise it is a great complex whisky. The smell and finish is very good, and because of that I will give this 89/100 (23/21/23/22).
