Whisky Reviews for Arran 1999 GM

  1. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    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.

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    this is just a very nice and fresh Arran. 46% fits this whisky very well, making it gentle but still with a nice bite. Very pleasant dram.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Fruity, fresh, apples, then a lot of citrus, floral as well.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Very fruity, citrus with a pleasant sour note underneath. Pretty strong, nice 'bite'.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Still pretty strong, more orange now, and honey. Middle long finish.

    Fine Arran from the bourbon barrel.
