Whisky Reviews for Arran Millennium Casks

45 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.97 points

  1. Albaron scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    But quite strong alcohol, which slips into the peppery, that is a bit disturbing, plus a strong acidity. But otherwise delicious. The citrus notes and maltiness are very convincing and fun. A delicious whisky that is fun and not just a marketing gag.
    • Nose
      Alcohol sharpness, then tangerine, lemon, some herbs, quite acidic and dry also a bit mineral
    • Taste
      the pungency also dominates here, peppery, tangerine, slightly acidic. Fairly dry, also the minerality from the nose, in between always a few herbs and slightly bitter, as well as a honey note and strong maltiness.
    • Finish
      Tangerine also swings into the finish, plus tannins and a hint of oiliness

  5. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    pleasant whisky, somewhat out of balance: In the scent still fresh fruitiness, which in the body and finish no longer comes back.
    • Nose
      Very fruity and fresh, lots of citrus, vanilla, honey, floral.
    • Taste
      Light peppers, fruity but now more peach / apricot, honey and caramel. No more that freshness from the smell.
    • Finish
      Pepper still, reasonably long, wood tones, sweet, honey, caramel.

  7. Luigisim scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    This dram starts softly and ends strongly, even too much. Nice smells and sensations but a bit unbalanced

    Blind tasting notes from homemade Advent 2017 Calendar, gentle gift of friends
    • Nose
      Mild: yellow flowers, in particular daisy and mimosa
    • Taste
      Dense and delicate. Taste of Zuppa Inglese (italian cake made of custard and sponge cake)
    • Finish
      Medium, with predominance of alcohol. Not mild anymore 

  8. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Well selected items, nicely presented what the distillery can. Complex, elegant, powerful whisky.
    • Nose
      A lot of sweet fruits, citruses, honey, caramel and vanilla. Spicy oak.
    • Taste
      Powerful, complex. Sweet fruits, orange peel, bourbon vanilla, oak, cinnamon and ginger, cocoa.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy.

    good dram
    89/100
    • Nose
      the alcohol is very strong at first. very fruity on apples, guavas and mango. vanilla.
      the sherry influence is not very strong but whiffs of it from time to time. and I keep on getting whiffs of mushrooms.
    • Taste
      still very fruity, yet not as sweet as expected.
      the bourbon maturation is obvious with pears and vanilla and some pastry notes.
    • Finish
      medium to long, slowly drying
