.the arran – 100 proof

46% abv, single malt, non-chill filtered, natural color

Nose: medicinal at first, very feint, lemon peel, vanilla, hints of wood, citrus, blood oranges, red grapefruit
Palate: sweet, citrus, yellow grapefruit, spicy, jalapeño peppers, vanilla, cloves, hard green herbs, sage, laurel
Finish: sweet, vanilla, fruit bomb, pineapple, sweet oranges, tangerines, etc…
Mark: +++++

Conclusion: Not such a nice nose at first, but that gets better after a while. Get out your citrusfruit vocabulary and I am sure it is in there.

More info: I would not have given it it 46% as it give a feeling of a much higher abv when you first try to get a whiff.

Tasted at the Arran distillery, as part of the tasting flight #5: Arran malts past
