Arran 1996 12 Year Old Peacock

Nose: Lemon meringue , vanilla cream, some dough oak and malt. light and fresh.

Palate : Malty , bitter and oily. Orange peel and fruits. Vanilla ice cream notes. The mix of the Bourbon and Sherry casks is good and you can enjoy both worlds without one dominating the other. Good choice of cask there!

Finish : Dry bitter oak and fruit. Medium length finish.

a great summer malt all in all, well-integrated and fresh. I know some people love this one, but i think it’s very good. Not Excellent, but solid. I might have been expecting too much from this one after reading all those great reviews.

That sounds like something I would indeed enjoy standing on my balcony at the end of a long summer day!

Nice review. The Peacock has been on my wishlist for a while after reading several glowing reviews in late 2009.


How well can bourbon and sherry casks work together ? Very well when it comes to this malt. The two cask types battles to give their flavours away to the drinker in a perfect harmony. Best vatting I have ever experienced
