Arran Single Cask 98/820 Tasting Notes (Sean R)
Nose: Caramelised orange marmalade, peanut butter, digestive biscuits, tropical fruits, kindling wood. The addition of a drop of water brings out a burst of banana toffee (yes, they do exist), and more nuttiness.
Palate: Spiced sweetness like a peppered creamy toffee dances on the tongue. There's a lovely oily fruity surprise that becomes dry and woody. Water tones down the pepper and brings out the wood and dryness.
Finish: Medium-long. Sweet with a warming chilli-tingle. The sweetness stays, but moves over to that dry woodiness and leaves your mouth slightly oily.
