Arran Amarone Cask Finish

Wine Cask Finish Arran Amarone Cask Finish

Nose: Different. Warm, sweet, nose. Winey/Grape, and faint chocolate overtop of a faint grassy floral malt. Taste: the Amarone "dry red" wine influence really takes over and seems to overpower the malt…

Ardbeg Ardbog

Sweet Peat and Ardbeg Ardbog
