Whisky Reviews for Arran 18-year-old
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.58 points
- Beautiful 46% vol. Typical mix of ex-bourbon and sherry casks. Very complex.
First sweet fruits, vanilla and something that reminds me of Christmas. And oak, no wonder at 18 years.
Chocolate, caramel sweet with vanilla. And a sharpness. Fruity, no lemon, orange, more orange juice.
Medium to long. The fruit stays and also a chocolate.
C: I had this in March and liked it very much [Blog87]. This appears to be a softer/tamer batch [or bottle], with a shorter finish.
The first person I stop and talk to [on my way to TBWC stand] is Mariella Romano, followed by Colin Hampden-White [thethreedrinkers.com]. Now based in Glasgow and Global Brand Ambassador for Arran, Mariella pours us both the 18yo which I've not tried before.
C: Solidly competent whisky and at £76, a fine alternative for fans of the Macallan 12yo sherry wood say, at £70.
