One of the nicest Arran I’ve tried, alongside the Tokaji Aszu Wine Cask (55%). The nose already shows a great deal of promise right off the bat. Abundant fruit presence, signature of Arran, honey, orange peel, nuttiness, and a faint sense of anise. The palate is a great balance of fruit, chocolate, and spice, with a touch of the nuttiness from the nose, followed by a medium to long finish, where the oak kicks in, along with ample spiciness, malt, and mineral notes. Great special release.
