Bottler: Single Cask Nation
Brand: Single Cask Nation
ABV: 55.9% ABV
Age: 13 Years
Nose: Sweet butter cream, red vines candy, praline, buttered toast and sweet raisin. The wine is fairly straightforward and evident. Ethanol is tame.
Taste: Medium mouth feel. Heat in check. Sweet and oily with syrupy fruits, stewed fig, some pepper and praline. Fresh baked bread, black currant and syrupy berry.
Finish: Long, powerful and loaded with berry, currant, syrupy and sulfur. Some pepper, nice oak structure. Heat grows with time.
Overall: Delicious, complex and interesting. Nice work, Arran, and Single Cask Nation.
