Whisky Reviews for Arran 2001 MoS

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.26 points

  1. Rom did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Totally inexpressive nose, some caramel and dried fruit. Bitter and caramelized mouth, mixture of greenery and Sherry. Final short and bitter. It's an Arran.

  2. Ivynor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Not very excited about this arran which I expected much more. The sherry accord and fruity notes of arran did not work
    • Nose
      Good sherry, dried fruits, dark chocolate; then behind arran: green apples, pear alcohol. The set is not very harmonious, the alcohol is moderately integrated
    • Taste
      strange, a little leather, some dried fruit and apple alcohol. Again, not very balanced
    • Finish
      Old barrel, balsamic vinegar, dried fruits and green apple

  3. tomy63 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    flow clear amber, expressive nose, on toffee, vanilla, milk chocolate, nougatine, raisins, dates. Mouth quite sweet, easy, in a style neither very dry nor very sweet, caramel, dried fruit, orange, honey. Average length. A style very different from bourbon Arran. During a second tasting it seemed less sherry and especially sherry and fruit seemed dissociated, a hint of alcohol too.

  4. Falnor scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    The volume of the alcohol makes it a very smooth player. Seductive and easy drinkable.
    • Nose
      Sharp red fruit, cherry, becomes more round and turns into oranges. Leather. Caramel and fudge
    • Taste
      Sweet grains, syrup and milk chocolate. Also the oranges from the nose only this time covered with chocolate
    • Finish
      Sweet and smooth
