Whisky Reviews for Arran 1996

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.75 points

  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    It's been long since I've had a sherry-matured Arran this good.
    • Nose
      A good amount of blackcurrants and strawberry jam, with some subtle notes of damp soil, tobacco and burlap in the background. There are some lighter touches like orange zest and floral notes, as well as cinnamon and nutmeg.
    • Taste
      Cherries, cocoa powder and soft notes of mint, but also touches of espresso and chocolate covered coffee beans, with some hazelnuts and pralines too. Finally a whisper of charred oak and fennel.
    • Finish
      Touches of mint and bitter chocolate before settling in a sweeter territory. Long.
