    I really like what the Arran distillery is doing, but they missed the boat on this one. It is a unbalanced over sweet short delivery with a weird finish that is unpleasant. It hurts me because I wanted to like this. The14 and the 18 are amazing and I have had other NAS Arran expressions that are fantastic.

    The first dram from this bottle was very disappointing. Then I let the next dram sit in the glass for 30 min and what a difference. The dram the next day was delicious. Creamy , raisin, dates some herbal notes with a dry finish. A touch of smoke . Really enjoying this one.

    Wish I had more time with this one. This was amazing. Instant sweet that quickly disappeared and became Smokey brine and on the nose crushed sea shells. I know that sounds weird but I spent a lot of time in Central America and my wife would collect sea shell put them in a jar and they smell the same as the caol ila 30. There is a sour note and a citrus note. Need more time. Fantastic.

    Almost done the bottle and after spending time with it, ripe banana has appeared. The ledaig funk has seemed to mellow but that might be me getting used to it. This is such a fun expression.

    Not very good. Unbalanced and sharp. On a good not it is great for cooking especially smoky baked beans.

    Buttered toast , chocolate, nutty, dried fruit , waxy , tiny hint of smoke at the end. This is a very enjoyable exasperation. Well done tomatin. It does take 15-20 minutes to open and it still changed while drinking it over the time in the glass.

    This is my second posting on this expression. It gets better and better. This is a low key easy , smooth drinking scotch that after sipping on it for awhile you realize how amazing this is how subtle the flavours are but how it holds your attention almost subconsciously. Great scotch.

    I’m not sure about this one. I love the kilkerran 12 , 8 but this one didn’t seem balanced. I only had one tasting and maybe it would have gotten better. I don’t think it’s one I would buy but definitely would like to try again.
