Arran 16 yo, 46 %

This is a limited edition and is made from bourbon and sherry casks. Only 9.000 bottles were made. It almost smells like blueberry sorbet with nectar and fruity sweetness.

The taste is filled with classic sherry cask expressions, but is still very fresh. Perfect match between bourbon and sherry casks. The finish is a bit darker, but still you sense the light notes underneath. It stays for quite a while, so thanks to Arran for not water it all the way down to 40 %.

Very well put together, both in balance and complexity. This would be perfect to an ice cream dessert. A whisky that just gets better and better, so give it a couple of minutes to breathe. I will rate this 91/100 (22/22/23/24).
