Whisky Reviews for Arran 12-year-old
20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.13 points
- a decent dram perhaps a tad too expensive
I find it rather malty, would have expected the fruit to be the dominating component. freshly baked croissants with a good amount of butter, malt candies, baked apples, tinned peaches
quite sweet and lovely malty with danish pastries, apples again and some vanilla.
medium to long, still malty
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: A good dose of sea spray, followed by the sweet notes of maple syrup and tropical fruits.
Palate: Oily and mouth coating, with green apples and hints of dark chocolate and coffee beans.
Finish: Succulent dark cherries followed by an amazing duo of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Overall: Another cracking Arran Malt.
- Very nice! One of the best Arran's I've tasted.
full, dried fruits, cereals, blueberries, yogurt

very long, bitter
- Lovely chocolaty and coffee notes on the nose. It impressed me at the time when it was one of my first serious BFYB malts. Nose, taste and finish all good. It's got a lovely creamy mountfeel and a decent lasting finish.
It really gives a almost too intense flavour explosion neat, and it can really take a LOT of watter, almost undrowneble. The art is in finding the right balance for your mood. But when you find it, this dram is really sensational for it's price!
