Arran 2004 Reviews
Colour: Ripe Golden Barley
Aroma: Malty and herbal initially with hints of vanilla freshly cut hay. A veritable hedgerow of aromas is at play whilst honey and sweet fruits emerge with a dash of water against a back-drop of rich, toasted oak.
Palate: Ripe apples and oak dominate at first before a full-bodied spiciness envelopes the palate and cuts through the sweetness.
Finish: The bold malt re-appears to mingle beautifully with the spices which soften over time. The influence of the Bere Barley is dramatic and unmistakeable; offering a taste of whisky as it used to be.
