Arran Port Cask Finish, 50 %

From the series Cask Finishes comes this Port Cask Finish. Light fruity flavours with the sweetness from the fruits in the end. The smell is very mild even though that the ABV is at 50 %. A bit more power and it would have been perfect.

The taste is a continuation of the smell. Light fruity but with the classic characters of Arran. Salty and citrusy with a great, yet mild, Port influence. Some darker fruits appear in the finish. Lot of raisins.

After a couple of sips the darker fruity notes becomes more and more predominant. Fine balance and the complexity delivers what it is supposed to. I will rate this 92/100 (22/23/24/23).
