  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    intense scents for a 21 year anniversary!
    • Nose
      fruit stewed, barley sugar
      caramel, butter, butter sweets (fudge), chocolate, malty sweetness
    • Taste
      it's spicy, it's honeyed, candy with barley sugar reappears, milk chocolate too, it's pastry, it's a little woody, it's a little iodized, it's very good!
      the fruits cooked, macerated, on the orange, the pear, the peach of vine, the mango
      there is a bit of bitterness, the one found on the almond hulls
      there are a few wild herbs, with the flowers that go with it, it embalm!
    • Finish
      rather long with an association between the fruity, a little moldy and sweet pastry, it holds in mouth!

    The lovers of Arran sherry will appreciate, it's not bad at all, it's even good ... but it's way too expensive for what it is ...

    22-23-23-22, delicious arran, bypassed the brodick bay, but a flash of figs would guess distillery

  7. feeroff scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    22 + 22 + 23 + 23 = 90 ~ Absolutely did not expect such a tasty moltik from Arran. In the blind would be more inclined to Farklas, too much bulging sherry

  8. Schnappsdrossel scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Color: Burnished

    Rather meets my imagination mature Arrans. Almost smoky wood aromas, without any particular bitterness.
    • Nose
      No sulfur, but a angekokelte woody note, wax, yeasty-nutty sherry. Polished oak, espresso. With water: Harziger, candle soot. Passion fruit, bitter orange jam.
    • Taste
      Very waxy, ripe oranges, again charred wood, yeast dough, walnuts, overripe mango, later breadier. With water: loses its waxy texture, hot coffee.
    • Finish
      Long, charcoal, wax, pickled plums, frankincense, cinnamon.

  9. schengel10 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    For the anniversary, an Arran top malt! Great bottle, great packaging, proud price!
    [Color] copper;
    • Nose
      91 91
      subtly fruity, dry, dark fruits, honey, light spiciness;
    • Taste
      91 91
      diluted: fruity full-bodied onion, blackberries, cherries, sweetness, sherry, strong spice, stimulating salivation;
    • Finish
      90 90
      long, full finish; long fruity, spicy finish;

  10. Brinker scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      82 82
      Very odd nose.. Its sweet, the caramel definitely comes through, but at the same time I find a trace of paint.
    • Taste
      88 88
      The sherry is imminent, and the dram is undoubtedly Arran with its floral and fruity sweetness, with spiciness to come.
    • Finish
      90 90
      Medium-short finish. The fruitiness lingers with honey.
