Whisky Reviews for Arran Pomerol Bordeaux
12 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.23 points
- First of all: I like Arran for trying something like that. For me, with all the cask finishes of Arran (the older limited edition) only a hit rate of 50%, a top (Amarone, Madeira, etc), the others are not as good as here.
Citrus, white grapes, metallic, acid, green apple, touch young sulfur, not very inviting to be honest
Lemon again first, white wine, lychee, green apple, vanilla, flower meadow, slightly sour, champagne
Dry-bitter, young, somewhat unpleasant, medium long
- Cinnamon. And behind what, hot, spicy. And in between fruity ... plum jam? Cinnamon, a lot of cinnamon. Plum jam with cinnamon.
- An interesting piece of Arran, the barrels of Bordeaux have added this whisky to an interesting orange and snakestick.
Fruit brandy, orange jam, chocolate. (84 b)
Very original flavor, creamy, initially fruity sweet, but followed by a rapid turnaround into a dull dryness. Again, the orange, chocolate. In the flavor of dryness and some fruit spirit, most reminds me of cherry or cherry. (86 b)
- The color of the Arran reminds of an old Cognac. The aroma is a mix of apples, pears and cherries. In the mouth are fruits, apples, pears and plums, but also dark chocolate and cocoa. Above is a ginger sharpness. The finish is long and strong and at the end there is still some salt on the lips.
A hard-to-grasp whisky, without being really sweet, it's very pleasant and tasty. The higher alcohol content is noticeable.
