Thompson’s Arran 1996 – 18 Years Old Sauternes Cask 1834 – Single Malt Scotch Whisky – Isle of Arran

The nose is aromatic and quite gourmand. It reveals notes of rancio, citrus (orange, candied zest), honey and slight notes of caramel associated with fine notes of grape as well as a few slight touches of flowers (in the background). The palate is fruity, round, suave, gourmande, well structured and offers a certain power and a certain softness of the matter. In the mouth this Whisky expresses notes of rancio, candied peach and slight notes of citrus associated with small notes of zest, pear as well as fine notes of caramel, honey, oak and a touch of peat. Good length and persistence. A nice Whisky!
