Whisky Reviews for Arran 1996 Cl

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.05 points

  1. butt scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    He needs time to breathe. At first Sherrynoten hardly existent, alcohol only weak to smell, Acetonnote. After 10 minutes significantly more sherry.
    He floats in the mouth without corners and edges, lies soft on the tongue with fine sherry flavors. As soon as he enters the pharynx, the alcohol is clearly noticeable and wipes away the soft and gentle. Too bad.

      Croutons, toasted bread, medicated crispness, gunpowder glue, glue on toast, spring flower, slightly musty (wet children's bicycle clothes) sherry aroma, but still very good aroma, alcohol barely noticeable.
      With more air: more sherry. Very clearly. salty butter caramel (caramel au beur salé). With more air around classes better. The adhesive is gone. Alcohol comes with time. Nose rounder than the finish.

      Soft, smooth, smooth, alcohol creeps over your tongue, creeps overcast in November rain, light smoky, Black Forest ham - very back of the throat - late.
      Very nice taste the bottom line. With more air but sharply sharpening.

      Medium-length finish, becoming drier, remains fruity, dark chocolate (cocoa 70% +), bicycle frame at the very end (medical, metallic). Alcohol comes to the fore again. When it gets sharper, the very elegant of the whisky takes something away. In the end, with more air, vanilliger. The metallic becomes more broccoli than idea.

      Three drops of water take the stinging almost completely away. The slightly metallic remains.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    Nose: Characteristic Arran fruitiness (think pineapple and grapefruit), playing well with raisin and chocolate notes from the cask.

    Palate: Cloudy lemonade, sandalwood, sultana, gingerbread and stroopwafel.

    Finish: Enjoyably malty, with hints of candied ginger lasting.
