Whisky 2018 – 71

I bought this bottle on my last trip to Japan. I’ve had it open since January and didn’t think that much of it; it felt hot and one dimensional. How a couple of months open has changed it – noteworthy even.

71 – Arran Private Cask “The Arran First Vintage 1995” for Malt House Islay 21 Years Sherry Hogshead 49.6%
Nose – almonds, flourless orange cake, egg whites, burnt butter, pandanus
Palate – liquorice, cake mix, dried citrus, lantana, apricot jam, maraschino cherries, peach ice tea
Finish – boozy cream, salt, sugary ice tea tannins, rock candy
