Whisky Reviews for Arran 1997 WT

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.23 points

  1. Noface83 scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    Nose: somewhat restrained with amaretto, dark pickled cherries and wet oak (such an acid wood note). Over time, woody roasted aromas get through. Despite only less than 50% of the good something fresh and alcoholic. Even a small sea breeze occasionally blows through the glass.
    Taste: strong tingling onset, only briefly a sweet cocoa note but quickly displaced by bitter orange peel and heavy oak. A slight sugar candy sweetness with cherry flavor remains but over the entire finish. The wood is very dominant and skin to the end with its bitterness fully pure. With water comes the cocoa note and caramel stronger but also the oak is a bit musty muffiger. Nevertheless, the water is delicious and creamy in the mouth.
    Unusual and somehow delicious. But the big hit is whisky tales for the anniversary unfortunately not succeeded. Too expensive compared to other 18's Arrans.
