Awards and/or Press Quotes
Dave Broom, Whisky Magazine NOSE Clean, sweet and intense (which you’d expect, given the strength), but also sweet and well-balanced (which you’d hope for). Fresh, with candied lemon peel, light cereal and yellow banana skin. It does scream out for water, which brings out a note of Fox’s Party Rings (orange icing) without losing any of that intensity. PALATE Quite estery when neat – pineapple and banana to the fore, with hints of the boost given by quarter cask, alongside a gently smoothing creaminess. When reduced, has real depth while – and here’s what elevates it – the more volatile elements are released to play around it. In other words, it has complexity. Now you get more strawberry, orange chews, bluebell and a little oak. FINISH Clean and lightly acidic. CONCLUSION The latest in Arran’s Limited Edition series that’s been aged in refill, then finished in American oak quarter casks. It’s a cracker. Snap it up.
