Arran 19 yo (1996/2016), The Single Cask, 45,8%

Review #550
A single cask from The Single Cask. It is cask number 1607 and 102 bottles were made. Sweet raisins and gentle oak in the smell. Sweet marzipan and oranges. Just a touch of grass citrus in the end.

More rough in the taste at first. Dirt and grass, but very quickly it turns sweet in the finish. Loads of honey and vanilla, but also some fruity sweetness that reminds me of Christmas. Maybe tangerines and clementines.

A funny combination of the rough notes, like grass and dirt, and the sweetness. But it works! As always – Arran delivers. This is like the dessert version of Arran and the age really suits the whisky. I will give this 86/100 (21/21/22/22).
