Insider knowledge: Arran The Devil's Punch Bowl Chapter II (Angels and Devils) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Arran The Devil's Punch Bowl Chapter II (Angels and Devils) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Dried fruit and wood spices with notes of mocha and tobacco leaf.
Palate: Vanilla, mixed nuts, juicy prunes, dried papaya and chocolate liqueurs.
Finish: Caramel, cocoa and earthy winter spices.
Overall: Dark and mysterious, but all good.
Simply can not fault the guys at Arran, first fell in love with the 15yr sherry single cask. This really is next level stuff, the complexity is beautiful. Very much on par with some of the Black art releases coming from the Laddie guys
