Arran 18 Year Whisky 70cl
Appearance: Golden treacle.
Nose: Intense peat and vanilla. A raisiny sweetness checks the smoke. Iodine-edged peat and crisp, roasty malt. Satisfying and enticing.
Body: Full, rich. Palate: Sweet and luscious; clear, grassy malt, then the peat attacks, smoke filling the mouth. A very salty tang at one point; the middle offers coffee and vanilla with a glimmer of fruit.
Finish: Incredibly long, even for Islay. Fruit, peat, and long-lasting oak. Very chewable and more-ish.
