Noface83 gave this whisky 89 points

Nase: sehr fruchtig und süß, etwas parfümige Seifen-Süße, Mandarinen-Saft, Ananas, leichte Zitronen-Säure, Reiswein, frische geschnittene Eiche, Bleistift-Späne,  Vanille, etwas Pfeffer und Zimt 

Tolles Ding - Arran passt einfach wunderbar zusammen mit Bourbon Casks - viel Frucht, Süße und angenehm frische Holz-Noten. 


Geschmack: überraschend würzig, erst wieder viel Frucht und Honigsüße dann eine unglaublich cremige Haselnuss-Note, Muskatnuss und eine feines Holz-Aroma mit starken Espresso-Bitternoten. 

Im mittellangen Abgang dann erst wieder Bitterkeit und Nougat dann kommt eine leichte Parfüm-Süße und Vanille und wieder ordentlich Holz und ja dann doch wieder etwas Ananas nach hinten hinaus.

Toller Twist nach der Nase aber etwas mehr Frucht-Aroma wäre mir lieber gewesen.   


Super Abfüllung mit traumhafter Bourbon-Cask Nase, interessanten Twist und guten Abgang. Preis grenzwertig aber für Aufmachung und Qualität noch in Ordnung. Klare Kaufempfehlung wenn man auf Bourbon-Cask und intensives Holz steht.

Vey decent Bourbon cask with typical Arran nose and taste, but probably needs more time + oxygen to disclose its full potential as most cs bottles do. Will adjust my rating accordingly if it gets (even) better and smoother in time. Thus far not a dud at all but no stellar release, either. Also thanks wb for the pretty presentation! ;-) 87p.

Update 11/4/18
It's gotten better already, air helps 88p.

Update 17/4/18

Jep, showing its true colors now! 89p.

Oh Laphroaig, where art thou?

make difference and always consider: Is it the main thing to keep the main thing the main thing?
