Arran Batch 2 That Boutique-Y Whisky Company
Arran Batch 2 That Boutique-Y Whisky Company, NAS, 49,4 %
This is a whisky bottled by Master of Malt; it is the Arran Batch 2 That Boutique-Y Whisky Company. It is a no age statement whisky, single cask. I sampled the contents of bottle number 101 out of a total of 459 bottles.
It appears this batch is now sold out at Master of Malt, but you can buy Batch 3, at around GBP 45 for 500 ml.
Nose (21/25): Super fresh, lovely sweet nose. Light and delicate. Citrus, other fruits, and a hint of washing powder.
Taste (21/25): Oak, caramel, lots of pepper, orange bitters, and creamy vanilla.
Finish (22/25): Pepper, ginger, chocolate, caramel, creamy vanilla and oranges. Spicy and chewy. Medium long, and medium warmth. Spicy, oily and rich licorice right at the end.
Balance (21/25): A really nice, if a bit different, Arran. The finish was the true highlight here.
