Whisky reviews for Arran 1995 MBl

7 users have left 7 reviews for this whisky. Average rating is 86.39 points.

  1. LDB scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A great example of a successful Arran who no longer has the lemon-like bite of the younger representatives of this still. In terms of points, in my opinion, underrepresented here.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Hot apple juice, lemon tea, eucalyptus candy, wet rocks, maritime-refreshing.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Wow, it has something of a non-smoking ex-BC Edel-Springbank or HP, with minerality and yet full honey-lemon aroma, at the same time very oily. The alcohol is barely noticeable.

      Delicious, tasty, balanced and yet not a bit boring, the taste of the palate can be enjoyed for a long time.

    extended Alba mport TASTINGNOTES:

    ... An interplay of luscious flavors of sweet barley and honey. Then nougat, nut, apple caramel, some smoke. Then mineral with cinnamon, charred oak, ginger paired with a nice buttery creaminess.

    • Nose

      If I didn't know better, I would have almost guessed a very good tequila based on the smell. Mineral and slightly vegetal with a deep fruitiness of lemons and apples (almost in the direction of cider). There is also some creamy vanilla, menthol, clove and pepper. After a while, honey will be added.
    • Taste
      87 87
      The fruitiness is clearly reduced compared to the nose, but a herbaceous note with sage and peppermint takes over. Some honey, plus a good portion of allspice.

      Long-lasting. At first, the clove pepper dominates. On the palate develops more in the direction of lemon-sage-honey-candy over time while mineral notes remain on the tongue

  6. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    a solid malt for me
    I would have expected more influence on tap
    • Nose
      Sweetness increases, sherry increases, slightly raisins, spicy, slightly vanilla, some malt, hairy notes increase, rum-chocolate, slightly metallic note, a note that I cannot name

      with water: sweeter, red berries, earthy, minimal floral note
    • Taste
      soft and round
      Oak, sherry, slightly spicy, some raisins, slightly increasing sulfur note, minimally moist cardboard, becomes tart

      with water: tart, slightly rubbery, chocolate ~75%, the moist cardboard comes out more clearly
    • Finish
      medium to long
      warm, spicy, sherry, some oak

      with water: very tart, chocolate ~75%, some dark caramel
