Arran #1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Arran

While batch #2 is here already, this is the first batch of “unspecified” Arran by TBWC. The comic label features the Glasgow-Arran ferry passing by a tropical beach.

 

Arran batch 1 - That Boutiquey Whisky CompanyArran batch #1 (49,1%, That Boutique-y Whisky Company 2013, 211 btl., 50 cl)

Nose: quite fresh and malty, with cut apples, vanilla and bright lemon notes. A little mint and slightly grassy oak. Mouth: sweet and sparkling. Nicely fruity (apples, pears, gooseberries) with a candy sugar coating. Some biscuity notes and grated coconut. White pepper, grassy notes and traces of ginger. Finish: medium long, showing oranges and warming oak.

A natural, summery Arran that’s close to the barley. A pretty honest product. Around € 52 (only 50cl though), available from Master of Malt.

Score: 85/100
