Whisky Reviews for Arran 1996

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.46 points

  1. peathead scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The nose starts as expected. Truckloads of sherry, but there`s something more than just that. I can not specify what exactly. In the mouth it`s all about creamy, oily sherry and ripe fruit. The finish is strong, but is drier towards the end.
    With three drops of water you can expect a huge explosion of flavours. This is a top notch whisky!

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Specialist



    Short description: A grown-up variant of the Aberlour A'Bunadh.

    Blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Typical
      Oloroso nose: Marshmallows, citrus, orange, dates, plums, almonds, raisins. The
      nose reminds a lot of Aberlour A'Bunadh.
    • Taste
      Stewed
      fruits, marshmallows, oranges, dates, almonds and mint. Quite aggressive in the
      mouth though despite the sherry maturation.
    • Finish
      Warm
      and fruity, 'darker'
      than the nose and taste. Slightly meaty and earthy, and again that typical
      Oloroso note that I describe as marshmallows. A whiff of rubber, but not
      disturbing.
