    A lovely Arran filled with distillery character.
    • Nose
      Intense sweetness. Fresh orange and orange oil. Caramel and caramel apples. Maraschino cherries, banana, strawberry jam. French toast, vanilla, and white chocolate. Soft brioche. Ginger. There's a savouriness here: a little tobacco, and something like dried meat (maybe biltong and Play-Doh). There's a touch of salt and mineral in here.
    • Taste
      Medium-bodied and oily. Sweet fruit syrup and honey up front, but instead of rounding off from there, it gets astringent and oak-driven. Overbrewed green tea. Vanilla. Ginger. Tart blueberries.
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate and coffee at first, but as the oak dissipates the floral, fruity, sweet notes take over. Ginger and cinnamon. Clementines. Wax. Caramel apple. Buttery shortbread. Mouthwatering salt.

  12. Ostap scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Just a chic whisky! Bright and restrained at the same time. Extremely fragrant, confectionery, tasty and insanely drinkable. With a box of this you can easily go to a desert island for a month.
    • Nose
      Baking with fruit filling (apples, currants, apricots), pear (fresh and canned), white bread, sweet and sour jam, non-alcoholic, the main theme of whisky - fruit and berry sour. Apple juice, refreshing peppermint chill, sherry, raisins, milk iris, cake with soft cream, orange peel, ginger, exotic bright, honey, dried fruits, dried mushrooms, notes of meat, ice cream. Rich, kaleidoscopic aroma, you can sit with it indefinitely and do not decipher all the components until the end.
    • Taste
      Round, warming, restrainedly sweet, citrus, with bacon, a bunch of fruit, citrus, ice cream, oak spicy, vanilla, dessert cream, pepper. Perfect strength.
    • Finish
      Consecutive, with a mini explosion at the initial stage, long, citrus, juicy, honey, apple, pear, pepper. Gorgeous!

  14. The_Osprey scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Arran 21st Anniversary 52.6%. Aroma vanilla booze American oak, caramel. Quite simplistic oak and spirit - like an oaked vodka. Taste is again simplistic ... easy-going up front, some vanilla and spicy oak, suggestions of peat crop up slightly burnt cracker and faintest sweetness that takes the base away from cracker dryness towards vanilla biscuit but only halfway there. It's austere and doesn't give a lot. It's nice and clean and dry. A dry French white wine of the whisky world. I mean I like it. It doesn't have much complexity or even huge amounts of flavour but everything it delivers it delivers well. Pretty sure this has some peat which I'm not expecting from Arran. Faintest tropical fruits but yes it's all clean American oak really. Perfectly enjoyable but I get the impression that a 40% release of this would be seriously underwhelming

    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

  33. DocF 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.

      The sherry is imminent, and the dram is undoubtedly Arran with its floral and fruity sweetness, with spiciness to come.

      Medium-short finish. The fruitiness lingers with honey.

    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!

Honeycomb, lime, rhubarb leaves, sugar cubes, slightly sour hints of yogurt / cream and waxy sherry, cardboard and ship dew. Taste: Heavy and tough at first - then sweet, very sweet (sugary fruit pulp). Now the flavors turn completely on herbs, wood (wood stain), fresh nettles, resin and mint. Now honey-sweet caramel and sugar, all packed together sticky. Finish: Medium long - when the palate releases the bitter and tough notes, peppered with the overpowering sweetness, the finish gets better again. The gentle yoghurt cream lime notes come back - unfortunately a little too late. Note: The taste is something for individualists! 83 points N: 88P / G: 80P / F: 82P

    a really delicious, ripe, round malt, the nothing goes wrong - for me, rather old-school has Speyside-style. Reminds me strongly of orange-heavy Glenfarclas of the personalities series, but has more alcohol. On the whole, I find it too expensive - because GF sells something for ~ 130 € with age and sufficient alcohol content.
    • Nose
      Orange grove, juicy fruits, flowers, peels, with mango, apricots, unwaxed slowly shriveling apples - wax, forest honey, fresh oak, nice sweet and sour balance, tannins, tart notes without bitterness, strong tobacco, vaille, some chocolate
    • Taste
      very round with mild alcohol, spicy sweet, the oak tingles on the tongue - with tobacco and grapefruit peel flavors, milk chocolate with orange creamy filling the mouth, light plums with very little clove, orange oil is fresh on the tongue, warmth and spice
    • Finish
      spicy oak, bitter but never bitter, chocolate with tobacco, the mouth is getting drier, but still creamy with fine orange notes

  53. lincolnimp scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    I notice this has scores from 82-97 so some varied opinions.

    This is the issue I have with Arran official bottlings that I have tried, they all fail to deliver on the highest level yet there are some outstanding independents, why is that?

    Anyway 84-86 is a fair score, its nice but not worth 200 euro

    EditMy final thought  is that it is slightly on the bitter side which detracts from the overall profile,  I think this lacks a bit of balance.

    • Nose
      Expressive, the sherry is prominent, fudge, a little ginger, some brandy notes (similar), cafe latte, some chocolate orange.
    • Taste
      Strong attack with a fight from the start between the bitter and sweet notes.Its a little thin at first but then seems to become more syrupy which I find quite strange. he bitter notes grow with some sweet cakes notes, biscuit, very slight almond notes with a little chocolate but overall I would describe it as pleasant.
    • Finish
      Not quite medium but pleasantly warming with no burn.

    Eye / nose: light gold, unspectacular. But the nose, which can cast me right from the start in its spell. A wonderfully unobtrusive, fruity sweetness and a smell profile, as I associate it more with bottlings from the 1970 / 80s. Flowering honey, orange zest, ginger tea, ripe mangoes, papaya, grapes. Very complex, very fruity, very yummy. Palate: Very nice velvety on the tongue. The sweet fruitiness of fully ripe fruits leads again. With vanilla and a kind of fine orange chocolate, the beautiful Lindt 'Orange' with the praline crème filling is not too far away. Intense, round and balanced. Once again the memory of malts from earlier days creeps over me. Finish / Conclusion: The intercept keeps what your nose and palate promise. A very nice, long finish, flavored by the previous impressions. It leaves a creamy note in the mouth, barely sharp, despite the cask strength. Fruits again, vanilla and a flavorful 'Konglemarat', which reminds me most of fresh almonds. In the tasting, there was talk of it, it remained a feeling as if you had enjoyed fine pastry. I can only associate myself with. An all around successful malt. Arran is still regarded as a relative newcomer, still a bit suspicious and rated accordingly behave accordingly. Wrong, I think. Respect for the work of James MacTaggart.

  61. Peiler scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    A great whisky. That made Arran really great.
    Not too cluttered, but still complex but quite clear. Not as overloaded as the Machrie Moor, for example, was so extreme.
    A worthy whisky for the anniversary, even if I do not agree priced.

    Not bad the part, nice clear complex profile. Although not one hundred percent my taste, I can understand the high ratings but. The price is absurd for those who want to drink it.

    I like Arran and its fruity drams so it is no surprise that this high rated dram gets also high points from my side Especially the finish is outstanding and makes lust for more! Well chosen Arran.
    • Nose
      typical honey, juicy oranges, caramel, almond and sour apple/pears

      For the nose I would not judge that it is much better than other Arran drams. The real Sherry influence is missing from my point of view.
    • Taste
      perfect balance of sweetness, fruitiness and some sour elements. Pepper comes through a bit and underlines this good dram.
    • Finish
      What a finish!! I was drinking this dram now 3 times and it is one of the best finishes I have ever had. So long complex and nice with almonds, ginger, caramel & espresso.

    Palate: all indulgence, focused on ripe fruit, punctuated with orange zest, lemon, and dark chocolate.

    A very nice package. https://www.drankgigant.nl/the-arran-malt-21st-anniversary-limited-edition.html
    • Nose
      Delicious tropical aromas against mango and the sweetness of red apples.
    • Taste
      On the mouth these fruity flavors return, but then in the form of pears in combination with honey and European oak. The taste also contains a delicious hint of basil, black pepper and dark chocolate. The citrus fruits give this delicious whisky a touch of freshness.
    • Finish
      In the long and warming aftertaste, taste delicious ginger with a hint of marzipan.
