  1. KayMeertens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    As with many 1996 Arrans, the sherry is not very in-your-face but its profile is superb.

  2. D3US scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose

      Light honey and orchard fruits. There’s apricot, apple, mandarin oranges. Then some sweet malt, more honey and perhaps some candied goods and vanilla sugar. A slight nuttiness too.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Good and malty, with the fruits at the front again. I smidgeon of white wine in the background, pastry and honey. More oranges and apples now, a slight metallic note.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Roasted nuts, covered in honey, with dried apricots and apples. I still get that slight white wine quality, a fruity one at that. Medium in length I’d say, with lingering fruits and honey sweetness.

  3. Rhönräuber scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    The name is an omen
    • Nose
      91 91
      Very fruity: tangerines, peaches, blossom honey, mango chutney and a breeze of sea air.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Sugared blood oranges, ripe nectarines, vanilla, dried apple rings, some ginger, no alcoholic sharpness, no bitterness, elegant.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Sweetly sprinkled apple cider, mead, cashews, - on the long end, tart oak covers the tongue.
