  3. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Too much wood on the nose, apple, corn. Apple palate, cereals, caramel tip. Medium final spicy. Not terrible.

  4. Ivynor scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Not necessarily a pleasure whisky. This arran, lacks expression and is below the Arran 1996-2012 Dewar Rattray.
    • Nose
      Alcohol moderately integrated. Strong smell of green apple, wood and vanilla. Cinnamon appears after a few minutes.
    • Taste
      Sweeter: toffee, cream, apple. The whole is quite unctuous.
    • Finish
      Drum rolls: ................ apple! And also some caramel

  5. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Brachadair is a rising star, it would seem. Patrick
    sure knows how to select his casks. Just under 70 EUR, which is value for money
    if you ask me.
    • Nose
      The nose starts of fresh with loads of white fruit,
      Jonagold apples in the lead. Very nutty on almonds and hazelnuts. Hints of
      gooseberries and lime. Coconut, even. Not bad and keeps developing in the
      glass. After a few moments, I get some creamy butter and cooked patatoes
      (good!) with some green herbs. This is of to a very good start.
    • Taste
      Very creamy and round on the palate. White fruit and
      pepper at first. Softens up quickly and offers vanilla and honey next. Hints of
      banana liqueur, who would have thought? Frangipane cake. Nougat. A slight farmy
      touch all the way in the back. I quite like this. Does not need water, but
      takes it well.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and spicy, but the white
      fruit remains the leitmotif.
