Whisky reviews for Arran 2016 DR

  1. Kaleva scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A decent whisky despite its young age. Fruity, balanced, simple but tasty with an affordable price tag. The whisky is quite harsh on full strength, but being diluted to 46-48%, it gets light and pleasant. Sherry influence is very subtle here but still can be noticed in the form of yellow dried fruits.
    • Nose
      Slightly sweet, fruity (peaches, yellow ripe apples), creamy, with obvious minerality (chalky), a bit of raw dough and honey, light woody notes, noticeable bitterness, some light dry fruits (apricots and sultanas). Water opens up caramelly and malty tones, amplifies wood.
    • Taste
      Medium-sweet, peppery, with juicy orchard berries (unripe strawberries, slightly sour gooseberries), oaky motives. Being diluted it gets fruitier (canned peaches, lychees), fresh bread, porridge, some citrus notes, more wood.
    • Finish
      Short, sweet, tad mineral, woody, slightly fruity17 and nutty (unripe walnuts).
