So, this one is the first Peated Arran released. Now peat being a sexy and very popular profile these days, this one sold like hot buns. It’s peated to 14 ppm, and was limited to 9000 btls.

Nose: Sweet peat, almost new make-ish,pear drops, and some apples.

Palate: Peat and smoke, some fruitiness and sweet maltiness. not very complex.

Finish: Smoke, and sweet cereals.

Bottom line:

A very young not very polished dram. Medium peated, and showing a lot of early age characteristics. I’d like to try that one in a few year’s time, aging would do it well,complexity wise, and will make it more rounded.

Hey galg

Have you been able to taste the second or even the third release? Would be highly interested in your opinion. Your bottle is maybe 6yo I guess?!
