  1. Ivynor scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The best arran that I have been able to taste so far.
    • Nose
      This is hallucinating the number of Arran 1996. They were redeemed at this time? They started to make Bruichladdich with 950 000 finishes?
      On the nose, it's pretty much gone. The whole is very fresh (green apple) but less bitter than the young Arran OB versions. Alcohol is well integrated. Some traces of hay and floral notes. Aeration leads more and more to woody fragrances, until you monopolize everything.
    • Taste
      Pretty unctuous, greedy. I am pleasantly surprised. It's a clever combination of brown sugar and autumn fruit. Alcohol is less integrated than in nose.
    • Finish
      Long, on plants and cough syrup. Arran releases his new medication (be careful to respect the indicated doses).
