  1. domani scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    I tried this Arran to complete the Cask Finish series. Within this series he is in my view the worst and not really recommended. The whisky is not round, flat and with alcoholic impact - 11.05.2019
    • Nose
      Delicate sherry aroma, citrus fruits, amarena cherry, pistachios, white chocolate, artificial vanilla extract, unrounded, spicy oak aroma in the background and some fresh mint
    • Taste
      Creamy and soft, malt sweetness, ginger, towards the end block chocolate with herbal aromas
    • Finish

    Nothing surprising, therefore, to find the cereal common thread like its little sisters. The mundanity will continue with classic notes of chocolate and red fruits, which one would, of course, expect to find when facing a cask of sherry.

    These fleeting notes evaporating moderately quickly, will give way to the bitterness just as typical of the series in question.

  8. Joe Karacho scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    A young fruity malt, sweet in the nose but dry in the mouth and throat, not a bad malt, but I would always prefer the 10-year standard bottling
    • Nose
      A fine, delicate sherry nose, sweet strawberries and cherries, ripe yellow apples and pears, a purée of local fruits, some oak in the background
    • Taste
      Surprisingly harsh alcoholic onset, fruity-vanilla, but rather dry than sweet, not as harmonious as the nose, but still delicious
    • Finish
      Relatively short and oak-dry

  9. Woodsmoke scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Very tasty. Sherryfinish is good in taste. 
    • Nose
      Dark fruits and Sherry.
    • Taste
      Fruity and some spicy. Fruit Bubble-Gum. Slightly thin
    • Finish
      Medium finish. Dry and fruity
