Imperial stout matured in whisky casks of Arran Distillery – 10%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Almost black
Head: Vanilla fudge, persistent, medium-sized foam
Nose: Burnt sugar, liquorish, faint fruit notes.
Palate: Strong liquorish, caramel, hints of vanilla and citrus fruit.
Finish: Long and bitter-sweet.
Overall: A very rich stout, perhaps a bit too much on the bitter side for my taste but very flavour-intensive. You wouldn’t guess the whisky connection though because it blends very smoothly with the beer.
