The white fruits are very dominant in the taste with a citrusy touch. Gently accompanied by the wood and some spices, like pepper, in the background. The finish is long and sweet. Like glazed apples and pears.
A solid dram from Arran. Appearance isn’t everything, and this is a great example. It is 18 years old and comes from a Sherry butt. The colour doesn’t indicate that, and to be honest, the taste doesn’t either… Not that there is anything wrong with that, at all! As I said, a good solid dram, and I will give this 86/100 (21/22/22/21).
