Whisky Reviews for Arran 1998

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.33 points

  1. LordBellamy scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    with water: some water does the malt very well, it opens, the sharpness disappears, the sherry keg becomes clearer, more caramel and nut flavors, the same applies to the taste, even if the sharpness does not completely disappear

    Conclusion: solid Arran, unfortunately in the taste too little balance, but the nose convinced immediately
    • Nose
      88 88
      strong with only a slight sherry influence, apple kernels, a little salt, toffee and Madel, caramel sweetness, a little vanilla, peach, lightly sugared oak chips
    • Taste
      84 84
      strong onset, pepper, fruity, a lot of oak, a few nuts, barely the sweetness from the nose
    • Finish
      85 85
      long, quite spicy, fruity and behind a lot of oak
