Arran 16 yo (1995/2012), Single Cask, 53 %

This single cask is from a sherry hogshead with the number 403. It was exclusively made for the Danish market and only 337 bottles were made. This is from the year that the distillery opened. The smell is fantastic with light sherry influence and some light addition of caramel and fresh fruits like apples and pears.

The taste has a funny wood influence. Very close to peat. The finish is nice and chewable. Some dark fruits and burned sugars.

Classic balance and typical sherry complexity. It is just really nice all the way through. A natural colored – non-chillfiltered – cask strength – single cask – whisky! What’s not to love? I will rate this 91/100 (23/22/23/23).
