Whisky Reviews for Arran 1996 SpSw

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.33 points

  1. Ostfriese scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Notes from a blind tasting
    • Nose
      First, there is a granary and hops, before citrus flavors, limes and apples come to the fore. Vanilla and heather honey, accompanied by peat moss and algae. A slight spiciness wafts in the background.
    • Taste
      At first he is surprisingly creamy, malty and sweet. The alcohol is more present than in the nose, a slight tingling on the tongue. Vanilla and fudge followed by spicy notes, cloves, ginger and nutmeg. Toasted aromas and coffee.
    • Finish
      Spicy with citrus notes, milk coffee and crème brulée. Slightly peppery

  2. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Meh, not much anticipated by the nose, in the mouth it balances itself a little, more citrus notes are opposed to the green notes and so it is almost interesting. But he has too many small mistakes for more points.
    • Nose
      Poof, very own nose, lots of rhubarb, fennel, zucchini and other green notes, sauerkraut, lemon zest, lavender and angular tannins
    • Taste
      Fennel, zucchini, peppers, rhubarb, green apple, kiwi and light honey, young oak, citrus notes and more indeterminate herbs
    • Finish
      Dry, oak, light malt, zucchini, lemon peel, medium-long
