A subtle yet characterful malt. Sweetness is teased up by dry spices. Beautiful structure. The proof that you can be young and accomplished.
The Arran Malt
No age statement
Islands (Non Islay)
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Delicately scented. Lemony. Semi-dried apricots. Peach in syrup. Hazelnuts. Quite an intricate aromatic build-up. Shortbread developing on creamier notes.
Palate: Smooth and sweet. Citrussy. Mandarin. Muesli.
Finish: Dry, crisp, spicy, chilli. Almondy notes.
Comment: A subtle yet characterful malt. Sweetness is teased up by dry spices. Beautiful structure. The proof that you can be young and accomplished.
Nose: Light. Green fruits, elderflower, cereal. Pure and sweet. Water makes it like an old-fashioned lemonade. Blossom-like.
Palate: Sweet to start, then a firm maltiness. Lively, light fruits. Effervescent.
Finish: Perks up nicely.
Comment: Well made, with good balance.
