Whisky Reviews for Arran 2005

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.17 points

  1. I_SPEY scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    A very nice whisky, balanced,  with vanilla and lots of peat! 

    And uhh, this dram loves water!

  2. markjedi1 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Good without, but great with water. A daring, peaty, beauty of an Arran!
    • Nose
      The nose is massively herbal and a touch farmy. Freshly cut grass, hay,
      heather, lavender and even a bit of coriander. Then mostly citrus and a bit of
      apples, skin included. It has a dusty side too, as if from wood shavings. Bit
      of toasted oak and vanilla. Very nice.
    • Taste
      On the palate I get loads of spices and a surprisingly large amount of
      peat. Very piquant, but also quite alcoholic. Adding water makes it very
      fruity, allowing the peat to disappear slowly into the background. Citrus,
      sweet honey, light oak. Nice balance.
    • Finish
      In the finish it remains feisty, discretely peaty and warming.
