Whisky Reviews for Arran 1998

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.70 points

  1. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    One of the representatives of barrel Arran, sherry in this case, an excellent aroma, complex, deep, taste at the level, aftertaste, despite some minimalism, is also good; not spirituous, drink. Of the minuses - the excess and sharpness of oak tones in taste / aftertaste.
    • Nose
      Tight, raw, dried fruits, rich sweet raisins, mushrooms, damp earth, mold, wine tones, oak impregnated with red wine, light minerality, grindstone, metal dust.
    • Taste
      Dried fruits, dried apricots, raisins, then a wave of red pepper mixed with oak bitterness, the oak is somewhat redundant and sharp, creamy tones, toffee, boiled condensed milk.
    • Finish
      Oak bitterness, wormwood, astringent, warming, grapefruit crusts with syrup.
