Arran Single Sherry Cask/Cask Strength Isle of Arran Single Malt Whisky

First nosing seems green and vegetal, with a background trace of sea salt; further time stirs additional scents, including wet sand, green olives, and linseed oil. Palate entry is lightly honeyed and caramel-like; by midpalate, the sherry influence is in full bloom as succulent flavors of dark caramel, black tea leaves, nougat, treacle, and marzipan thrill the palate. Finishes sweet, plucky, and heady. P.P.
