Arran 12 yo 1999/2012 Single Cask Nation

by Oliver Klimek on December 7, 2012

Cask 6 – 8 years first fill bourbon, 4 years pinot noir – 54.8%

My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Medium amber
Nose: Mixed tropical fruit, treacle, toffee, ginger, hints of nutmeg and pepper, a little whiff of rubber.
Palate: Dried pineapple, raisins, stewed apples, honey, lemon zest, vanilla, nutmeg and white pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and spicy.
Overall: Not really the aromas you would expect from a pinot noir cask, but this does not devalue this dram at all. Good fruit and nice spice, well balanced and enjoyable.

Rating: 85/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
