Whisky Reviews for Arran The Amarone Cask Finish
20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.16 points
- Amazing cask!
Touch floral with notes of malt, dark fruit, vanilla, citrus and a grapy wine note that kicks up a bit more with water.
Strawberries, malt, dried dark fruit, citrus, a bit of cocoa and more of that wine note which gets stronger towards the finish.
Finish: Wine, dried fruit, malt and overworked cocoa.
- WHISKYDREAM.de rated as follows ... Arran Amarone Cask Like all Arran, the whisky, refined in Italian red wine barrels, is not cool filtered. He has an extraordinary color scheme in dark rose. Its storage is also clearly recognizable by its smell of wine barrel and wine gums. He smells (despite wine barrel) very clear and fresh. Here you can see the distilling character Arrans. After a while, the scent of citrus fruits, freshly harvested figs, plums and roses is added. (86) Without the addition of water, a distinct peppery note remains on the tongue for quite some time, mixed with mash and grain and the taste of leather. When the pepper subsides, chocolate flavors come to the fore. The addition of a few drops of water affects the peppery explosion on the tongue little to no, but the grain is clear, shortly flashes plum and then very long dark chocolate in the mouth, before again fruits (cherries!) Added. (87.5) The very long, beautiful finish is characterized by woody aromas. (90) Overall rating: 88 points Repurchase Probability: 100% , who likes red wine and is on peppery whisky (ala Talisker), should definitely try it. An exceptional whisky.

- As usual, I'm studying for higher alcohol content, and here I have a different problem here - a few percent less would mean more in this case.
Dense dry scent of dried fruit and flowering flowers with heavy aroma, easy to feel malt. This is underlined by a dose of spices and alcohol penetrating.
The taste is again hard fruit - dried dark fruits, immature peaches, oranges, light vanilla, biscuits, spices and alcohol.
In the reverberation of raisins, chocolate biscuits and a decent dose of spices - the reverberation is quite long
- N- Deep raisin with aggressive balsamic seeping thru the nose. Firm and full strength. Ginger bread with rich dark fruits.
P- Crowded and packed with muscle, solid sweet custard with wild berries all over the palate. Dry and hot. F- Long. Heavy entry with spicy and tense mint clinch on the throat.
Heat build up over time with a drift of toasted sweet malt.

- amber color with red highlights, vinous nose, which is a little chemical bubblegum, interesting notes of red fruits and cocoa. Sweet mouth attack, red fruits, cocoa, always this chemical side in the background, but it stops quickly. Little length.
- 81 + / 82 -
Assez sec, vineux, un peu de cassis,des fèves de cacao. Sensation un peu bubble-gum sur la fin.
Très sucré en première attaque, facile mais un peu chimique. Légèrement crémeux, un peu de caramel. Fin de bouche plus végétale.
Assez court pour 50%, des herbes, pas mal d'amertume.
- Interesting that the sweetness and the bitterness stand side by side without influencing each other. The malt can be busy for a while. Especially the contrast of clear tannins and the fresh, light fruits of the young whisky makes for me the special charm. Amarone is also one of my favorite wines.
The Amarone stands with strong red wine notes right at the front, the alcohol is noticeable in the nose but restrained. After adding a little water, alcohol and wine disappear, leaving the field to all the pears and malt that already exist in the background. Later, pickled cherries are added.
strong alcohol, kirsch, sweet chocolate and lots of caramel, very clear tannins, which in this case certainly not come from the barrel, but from the Amarone. With water no significant changes.
Honey sweetness & slight but distinct bitterness will remain for a long time.
