The Arran Malt Scotch Single Malt Amarone Cask Finishes
First Look: “Beautiful ultra light pink salmon color with a noticeable hue.”
Nose: “Silky notes of apricot and honey followed by lightly toasted almond, red currant and subtle fruity malt.”
Palate: "While floral and complex, it showcases mocha, cracked pepper, toffee and soft rose petal notes."
With two drops of water, the viscosity ramps up; the mocha transforms to dark chocolate and the Amarone finish shows through with bing cherry and softness of poached apricot.
Finish: The finish is super complex and lingers for several minutes, which is a good thing.
Fair Trade: $80
Verdict: At $75-$80, this is worth every penny. If you haven’t tried this yet, you MUST get out and find a bottle. The Arran Malt Scotch Single Malt Amarone Cask Finishes is everything you could want in a cask series. I spent my money on this and will continue to keep it stocked in my bar.
