Whisky Reviews for Arran 1997 Ca88

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.00 points

  1. DarrenHJA scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Although I despise sherry casks, those releases from Arran have been very well done. Minus the tannins, rough edges, coarse mouthfeel and one dimensional sherry profile of most sherry cask bottles.
    • Nose

      Bold and bright citrus mixed with a heavy plum base. Sweet adzuki red beans with lotus paste.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Heavy, waxy mouthfeel and an oily base. Its like a Clynelish (?) in terms of body structure.

      Dark chocolate, ash, wood chip shavings, malted honey, burnt chicken to a crisp.

      Medium nutty base, steamed almonds and roasted cashew nuts. Heavy on the raisins, dried plums, red berries, tangy cactus fruit.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Intensely long, not too dry. The taste like scent of newly cut down trees :(. Oily tree sap, full of chocolate and raw cacao beans everywhere.

      Burnt bread is a highlight, very prominent.
