Whisky Reviews for Arran 12-year-old

- A really nice whisky, if one stands on vollmundingen Weinfasseinfluss, then you are right here
wow, starts directly intense and full of aromas, very fat, the barrel is very dominant here, intense cooked red fruits, cherry-raspberry-sude, nutty, light acidity of the fruit, one already thinks to chew, one has almost the feeling actually smelling of a red wine, in the background some malt, marzipan, after the first sip also clearly milk chocolate in the nose, the nuts are now also roasted, the nose is really very good
oily, intense, wow, roasted nuts strike, even a little sulfur, creamy, strong acidity of the berries, I never had that intense, definitely raspberry, but totally concentrated, in addition to the nuts, so from Arran I find nothing more, although in the back something Florales comes through, nice
Light acidity, some fennel, it is lighter and fresher, yes now shows the Arran his face, while chewing comes then again and again nut and raspberry again more clearly, pleasantly fading
- great part, ivh think that went to 100 ¬ that was appropriate, he lives extremely well from the good barrel in which he was - does not bother me, I would buy, I missed
beautiful Sherry nose, creamy berry cocktail, caramel, leather - very balanced - absolutely killed by sherry keg - I do not like Arran, here is nothing left of Arran in the nose
ostensibly a lot of delicious sherry barrel, berry jam and red groats from the very best. Later candied ginger, very warming, typical herbs and spices Arran oak, tree juice, wax, herbal tea with thyme - very yummy - nicely integrated alcohol - but already so Fassassig of the Arran almost nothing remains
warm, fruity, peppery but not alcoholic, slightly dry, very nice complex sherry front with red berries and orange peel - medium to long for his age great
- First, nice dark color.
Nose - no alcohol stands out, very nice.
Could smell it for hours. Smells like a good red wine and caramel.
Taste - sch .... is the most delicious - googling right away - there is no more: banghead:
Tastes of dark fruits, caramel and red wine again. Nice, longer finish
- Massive Burgundy, but not exaggerated, a very well harmony with the young spry distillate.
Orange peel, rum walnut, chestnut puree, dried fruits, spicy wine, gunpowder and oak.
Powerful and spicy. Pepper. Dried fruits. Raspberry, strawberry and grape. Honey and caramel. Sulphur and phosphorus.
Long, oaky, spicy, fruity.
- needs water imho
- A beautiful young island paint with strong red wine influence, but not too crass fails. He needs some time in the glass, but if you give him this, the Arran is really delicious. The finish is a bit weak, but all in all really great.
Strawberry cream sweets, oranges, galia melon, red apple, dark chocolate, cloves and cereals. The red wine comes through nicely. When the malt gets some time in the glass, it becomes increasingly sweeter and fuller. The alcohol is quite present but not unpleasant. I like it!
Wild strawberries, again the strawberry cream sweet ripe red grapes maybe even raisins, coffee, black pepper and again the clove. The citrus fruit I think again, but here rather than sugared lemon. There's some burnt out caramel and honey. Overall, rather dry on the tongue.
Medium long with passing strawberry, baking cocoa, sweet wood and slightly mineral. Nice game between sweetness and intense tannins at the end.
- no metallic notes or sharpness. a very smooth and balanced composition. performs as a fully-aged whisky.
aromatic potpourri of wood, red fruits, ripe pears and slightly burned cotton candy.
very sweet strawberry, doubtlessly strong pinot noir / red vine notes, silky barrique influence.
fermented red grapes, liquorice, cotton candy, almonds, medium length with a dry finish at the end.
