Whisky Reviews for Arran The Amarone Cask Finish

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.82 points

  1. Don Cassi scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    The aroma is strongly influenced by the wine and reminds me of a cognac. Unfortunately, it also contains crisp notes, which are probably due to the age. Above everything is a sweet note of rubber cherries (Haribo).

    In the mouth, a peppery spiciness from the alcohol develops, which settles a little with the addition of water and makes the whisky very soft. Behind it are dark red fruits.

    The medium-long finish adds even bitter notes that are reminiscent of coffee and leaves a certain dryness in the mouth.
    Length: 4/10

    A few more years would look good on the whisky and prevent the bubbly notes, overall solid dram, which, however, gambled away much of its potential.

    Grade: 2

      Light, sweet grape, pear, with lots of wine. The bourbon is dominant, but not too strong. Here comes vanilla, caramel and toffee.
    • Taste

      Very velvety in the mouth, sweet, gala apples, vanilla, creme brulee
      The Arran-typical, sparkling freshness is present.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium long and fresh with a sharp sweetness, the wine look through again.
