Whisky Reviews for Arran 12-year-old
15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.37 points
- Incredibly concentrated berries and cherry aromas that dominate everything here.
Very intense nose, an intense mix of red fruits and berries, concentrated and concentrated. Black Forest cake, marzipan, dark honey, dark chocolate. Old leather. A little blood orange and vanilla in the background keep the balance.
Moderate start, oily mouthfeel. Boiled berries and cherries, dark caramel, marzipan. Then slowly a few hostel notes, grapefruit, dark chocolate.
Medium to long. These concentrated berries and cherry aromas, dark chocolate, blood orange are also on the finish.
Leather, old wood, pine needles, cress on cotton wool, blackberries, strawberries, nuts, a little bit of citrus - more in the direction of orange, nutmeg, grasses, little bit that really reminds of dry red wine
Sweet, dark honey, strawberry, cherry, cherry yogurt, currants, herbs, lemon, even more cherries, nuts, dark chocolate, gets slightly dry in the mouth
- I don`t usually like wine finishes so I approached this with caution.
I was right this is not my thing, it just does not taste like how a whisky should, end of.
Not suited to my palate, the nose is ok , it is too spirity and thin on the palate for me.
60 points overall
- 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
