Whisky Reviews for Arran 2004

23 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.13 points

  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    At the first sip (only) a yummy-keksig-robust cereal whisky, if you just a little further sniffs into it and it's then with the citrus, green herb and herb notes really interesting, for around 50-60 € was then 'ne great bottle.
    • Nose
      Cereal, a little vanilla & banana, a bit of hay and dry herbs, a touch of white pepper ... not too hot or closed, but I have the impression that could help a drop of water: on the one hand creamy, vanilla, white chocolate, on the other hand but also for a short time sharper, the white pepper is more intense, a splash of lemon is added ... then it's green again, melon peel, fresh green beans, hay
    • Taste
      crispy, biscuit, grainy ... shortbread, vanilla kipper, a little honey, browned toast, with white pepper again, with water shimmering slightly bitter bitter citrus notes, grapefruit, lime, and cucumber / melon peel
    • Finish
      long, warm, dry, somehow light and spicy, the white pepper and the corn sound, the bitter citrus notes are still there

  2. Torfding scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      less malty than expected, but the aroma is present; freshly cut grass with a little chives, slightly sweetish, vanilla, pear and other bright juicy fruits, yellow apples; Over time, the chives give way and make room for even more apple
    • Taste
      light apples and weeping fruits (especially light), spicy, some oak and a hint of tea
    • Finish
      medium length with an eternally long reverberation on the tongue; malty, spicy and strong, warming, the fruit notes are also here, a little salty and chocolaty

  3. Eilean a' Cheo scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    N: Fresh fruity! Aromatich but not alcoholic. Next to the fruity there's a grassy touch, like mown wet grass. Not too sweet but mainly the freshness dominates.

    T: The taste doesn't keep up with the nose. Water improves it a bit, but still not on par... The tastes are in the same line as the nose.

    F: Short, clean and dry.

    C: Not spectacular. The nose is very promising, if only the palette and finish could keep on par... Tastes like too much water was added, only there’s still the alcoholic kick. I won't buy a bottle...

    I like Arran whisky in general, but this is an outstanding dram. Worth a try...

    • Taste
      Sweet, honey, malt, melon, oak.

      Vanilla, choclate, long and warming.

  10. DrinkingWhisky scored this whisky 70 points Expert Senior

    Tasted during a blind tasting competition in June 2015. I scored on the low side because it tasted "off", in my opinion. When the bottle was revealed it became clear to me that was due to the bere barley.
    • Nose
      Straf, droog, beetje zweetsok, gekookte andijvie, rabarber. Later ook grastonen. 
    • Taste
      Eerste slok… niet best! Daarna beter: kruidig en eerst weer die gekookte andijvie, dan vanille en een sinaasappeltje. 
    • Finish
      Blijft lang voorin verhemelte hangen waarbij zurigheid naar voren komt, gevolgd door een bittertje.
