Michael Jackson

Nose
The clean, sweet, Arran whisky and a kiss of Calvados promise a romantic encounter.
Palate
Exciting interplay: creamy whisky, cinder toffee, Belgian wafers, chocolate, crisp Calvados.
Finish
Surprisingly hot, but this bottling is high in alcohol. Needs a little ministering from the angels.
Comment
Was the Calvados cask notably generous, or is Scotch whisky particularly receptive to the Norman spirit?

Dave Broom

Nose
Intense and spicy: cinnamon, green grass apple pie. With water reminiscent of a Martinique rum: vegetal, green banana, toasted oak.
Palate
Appley and intense. Fairly sweet and spicy. The grassy apple note continues.
Finish
Nutty.
Comment
Balanced. Arran is becoming pretty impressive.
