Whisky Reviews for Arran 1996 HN

  1. magic_slim scored this whisky 73 points Connoisseur

    For the original price of approximately 40 € this is good whisky but I definitely do not like the sulfur and old oak.
    • Nose
      Smells like fireworks - the typical problem of sherry cask whiskies with sulfur that I do not like. In fact it is difficult to smell anything else. In fact I cannot find the typical Arran aromas that I found the Bourbon cask bottling by Art of Whisky that I tasted immediately before. Ok after awhile it becomes fresher with notes of apples coming up and the sulfur becomes weaker. Happy happy :)
    • Taste
      A spirity attack with notes of sherry, toffee, licorice and old wood. Of course there is some sulfur again. Quite spicy, becoming spicier and spicier over time. Very dry and slightly bitter ... old wood as I wrote.
    • Finish
      Medium long, spirity, spicy, bitter and dry.
