Arran Devil's Punch Bowl Chapter 2 Angels & Devils

Too many cooks spoil the broth? Well not in this case. 27 casks by Master Distiller James MacTaggart, 17 Sherry casks, 6 unpeated bourbon casks and 4 peated.. that and the name in itself were enough to get me intrigued...

Nose: Each of the casks have left a bit of their imprint on the nose.. there lots of spice coming from cinnamon and nutmeg, sweetness from raisins .. fresh wood shavings .. leave it longer.. there's some liquorice that comes through and finally some lemon zest in the back ground

Palate: A gentle mix of honey and peat make for an excellent combination.. there also a good amount of spice.. some more liquorice that follows through from the nose and dark chocolate.. finally got some mangoes ..or probably some similar fruit flavors that are in too

Finish: Medium Long.. just about perfect .. with the right amount of spices.. dark chocolate and some more raisins too.... well that how the red devil on the dark black bottle signed off!..

For me this a nice dessert dram and probably the perfect drink on a Christmas night near the tree by the fire place.


I've not had a lot of Arran malts but the ones I've had have been quite nice. There was 1996 Single Cask I had a while ago which blew my mind. So I was enthused to give this one a go. Lovely packaging with gorgeous graphics on a black bottle gives this one full marks for presentation.

It has a strong malty nose with a touch of raisiny sweetness. Followed by crushed white grapes on a grassy morning sprinkled with all kinds of herbs. And cool cucumber. Like being on a picnic.

A clean delivery brings an attack of honey, wet grass, white pepper with a droplets of woody lemon. No real flaws except maybe I would have liked it to be a bit chewy.

The finish, too, is fresh with the gentlest of aniseed.

This is a nice malt which ticks of most of the right boxes. However, when you have a jet black bottle with an angry flying demon and big bold letters then you're expecting something dark, complex and brooding. But that's not the case.

This malt is like forcing a young schoolboy with a sunny disposition to wear goth clothes and dark makeup.
