Whisky Reviews for Arran 1998

  1. Toffie76 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Nothing to add to the description of Bishlouk, I just noted a point below for the small alcoholic return of mouth. More a question of taste than a real defect of the product a priori. Excellent whisky nevertheless.

  2. Bishlouk scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A whisky with surprising behavior, which is off the beaten path. Pleasant as a whole, well done.
    • Nose
      Pretty spicy at first, you have to let it breathe a little to develop and deliver its scents. Then the fruits are offered (apple and pear in particular).
    • Taste
      Alcohol is neither aggressive nor invasive. A wave of fig with kirsch overwhelms the mouth, to leave as quickly and give way to more conventional fruits (apple and pear again). This wave seemed to me very particular and surprised me (pleasantly).
    • Finish
      A drought settles, to be then swept again by the apple and the pear. Here too, it surprises!
