Whisky Reviews for Arran 2001

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.25 points

  1. Tauti scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Yes, Peter is already working hard for his 59th birthday. What can we expect at his 60th?

    A great whisky with notes that I don't really know. I find the combination of walnut / salted caramel / mustard very interesting.
    • Nose
      A clear note of salted caramel, dry sherry, sourdough bread, walnut, wax, mustard, earthy-mushroom,
    • Taste
      Earthy and Engadine walnut cake, ginger, salt, fino sherry, dried autumn leaves
    • Finish
      Leaves, ginger, walnut oil, mustard, dry and a little salty

  2. Fundramental scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Ok, what do we have here today, a 2001 Arran finished in a Palo Cortado cask. What was it in before? We don't know. On the nose it is immediately clear, this was some PC cask. A breathtaking intesity of honey and Sherry. ABV is relatively low for a 16yo, so the alcohol sits nicely in the backgound. The taste, again very very nice Sherry, reminds me of a 1978 Kopke I recently cracked for my wife's Birthday. Absolutely lovely. I added a spot of water for experimentation purposes, don't do that!!
    So what cask was this in before it was re-racked into the PC? Hard to believe it was in a Bourbon Cask, or it spent quite some finishing in a 1st fill PC.

      Lot's of complexity in here, Keep it in your mouth for a while and dwell on it.
    • Finish
      91 91
      Warm and wonderfull
