Whisky Reviews for Arran 1999 GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

    Very nice and balanced. The fruity Arran spirit and the 19-year influence of the bourbon barrels work wonderfully together. The flavors complement each other and follow each other in a mild and thoughtful way.
    • Nose
      Fresh and fruity. Applesauce and lemon predominate. But there is also tropical yellow fruit salad (banana / pineapple / mango / passion fruit). Under the fruit a layer of vanilla, wood sawdust, nuts and spices.
    • Taste
      First apples and citrus, but also pineapple and banana! This changes to a deep and layered vanilla / wood / nougat taste with subtle spices (ginger, mint).
    • Finish
      Long. The vanilla / wood / nut layer sticks.

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    So smooth and fruity, at cask strength this one would definitely score over 90. This strength fits perfectly as well though, it's definitely a dram to keep pouring.
    • Nose
      89 89
      A very soft fruity nose. Nectarine, apple juice and vanilla sugar. A gentle touch of malt.
    • Taste
      90 90
      Unbelievable gentle, I've never tasted an Arran with such a velvet mouthfeel. Nectarine, pear, vanilla sugar and wine gum.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Vanilla, sugared almond, nectarine and apple.
