Machrie Moor Batch 5 Bottling Note

Named for the mysterious peat bog on the western side of Arran, the popular Machrie Moor single malt Scotch whiskies from the Arran distillery are peated, adding a core of earthy smokiness to their Island expressions. This is the 5th batch of Machrie Moor, which has been peated to 20ppm.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Light grassy notes rise alongside smoky, earthy peat. Hints of citrus, apple and pineapple (also seen in previous batches of Machrie Moor).

Palate: Biscuit-y malt, a little vanilla and lemon zest, surrounded by warm swirls of peat.

Finish: Peat lasts, as does the bright fruit notes.

Arran Machrie Moor Peated - Batch 5 Reviews

Gentle but full of character

Having been a fan of Arran whisky for quite a while, and usually opting for the 10 year old, I decided to pick up a bottle of Machrie Moor, as I've never had a peated whisky before, and thought it would be the ideal jumping off point. As with other Arran releases, it's a very sweet whisky, but not cloyingly so. There is enough citrus-like freshness to keep this lively. As noted above, it's peated to 20ppm, which seems to be enough to give a hint of smoke to the nose and taste, but it is in perfect balance with the fruity notes, and finishes with a touch of heat and smoke. There is almost a tea biscuit hint in this intriguing tipple. Having been to Arran several times, I can honestly say there's a mystique about the island, and this suits it perfectly. With this gentle introduction to peated whisky, I'm going to start exploring some of the Islays, but I'll always keep a bottle of Arran close by.
