  1. whisky_knight scored this whisky 67 points Expert Junior

    The Arran Amarone Cask Finish bottle was fine. I’m glad to have tried something with an Amarone wine cask finish, as it was a bit different from the more prevalent sherry cask releases I’ve been enjoying for awhile now. Pleasant, refreshing, but it didn’t really wow me, nor make me want to buy a bottle on the spot.
    • Nose
      65 65
      A bit demure. Cherries, berries, dried fruit. Some caramel sweetness.
    • Taste
      69 69
      Light-thin mouthfeel. Sweet & tart (high acid) cherries, dark chocolate bitterness. You don't even taste the 50% ABV as the alcohol is balanced, relatively smooth. Some vanilla, caramel sweetness, but the sweet-tart and dark chocolate / oaky character keeps it in check.
    • Finish
      67 67
      Medium-long, lingering dark chocolate. Light ginger spiciness, more wood on the fade.

    For me somewhere right in the middle with a multitude of others who want to stand out but can't make it.
    • Nose
      60 60
      Light fruit with medium-strong sugar sweetness. Alcohol slightly acrid. Water doesn't smell too good for him.
    • Taste
      60 60
      Slightly vinous, slightly sherry-like.
    • Finish
      60 60
      Almost nonexistent.
