Whisky Reviews for Arran 2005 - Peated Edition

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.49 points

  1. ScotchGuyTO scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    This seems aggressive for Arran, the peat comes across like a peated malt and not the peated cask as mentioned; maybe one cask of each?
    • Nose
      The nose is tropical fruit, typical of Arran and some coconut. Unground coffee beans and hints of rose water (slight), some autumn moss. Mustard powder and more fruit salad.
    • Taste
      The palate is a Whopper. Aggressive peat, sharp malt and milk chocolate. Are we sure these are Peated barrels, this seems more reminiscent of Machrie Moor. Loads of peat and charred pine.
    • Finish
      The finish is smoke and peat dominant, creamy Arran malt after, vanilla and outdoorsy autumn days. Cask spice prickles all over.

  2. WhiskyFan2112 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Moderate finish. Much different than first pour which was much more peated, leading one to believe that this was peated whisky and not peated casks.
