Arran, Bundle, 50 ppm

Both whiskeys are as expected heavily peated on the nose with some light fruity sweetness. On the palate you get the perfect interplay of the independent distillery characters, which stands out against the extremely strong peat at the backdrop. The two drams differ slightly in nuances, where the one has perhaps a little more fruit, and the other is a bit more maritime. The wood notes from the barrels provides the missing link between Arran and peaty malts.

Nose: Buttered cinnamon toast, honey, raisins and a generous helping of chocolate cake.
Palate: More chocolate cake, but now with a bonus slice of Christmas cake right next to it! Quite spicy on the mid-palate – think black pepper and nutmeg.
Finish: Damsons and pecans.
