Expert Junior SchottenDicht Note

SchottenDicht gave this whisky 86 points

I'm just returning from a whisky meeting at our local dealer, where the arran had just arrived today. So I couldn't resist to take a sip or two. To be honest, I'm still quit drunk so I can't give you exquisit notes as usual :-)

I remember it not bad, but I had a deanston 19y old px just right before the arran which beat it (arran lost). The arran is rather mild, the sherry stays subtile. The nose is also quit restrained. The finish is typical arran with island aroma. I had the feeling you shouldn't add too much water or it will lose its age very fast. Typical citrus, but concealed.

Conclusion: Is it bad? Not at all. Is it brilliant? Rather not. Is it worth a 100€ a bottle with caskstrength and age statement and original Arran? Absoluletly yes! But I wouldn't pay more.


I give it 86/100 p. but will have to retaste it - maybe it deserves one more point if not tasted after a sherry Deanston.

Color
Auburn
Nose

Kräftige Aprikosen und Rosinen, ein leichte Ingwertouch ist hier auch wieder dabei, dieser wird aber von den Sherrynoten dominiert, leichte Eichenwürze als auch Kaffee und Tabaknoten, Wasser verbindet alles und birgt einen Eindruck von Menthol 

Taste

Süße rote Früchte, ein kräftiger Antritt, pfeffriges Mundgefühl, mit der Zeit wird es cremiger, trockener werdend, mit Wasser wird er cremig und viel runder 

Finish

Viel Pfeffer, danach etwas Bitterkeit von der Eiche, die roten Früchte sind omnipräsent, der Abgang ist wirklich sehr lange 

Comments

Das ist wirklich einer der besseren Arrans aus dem Sherryfass. Das Fass hat aber keinesfalls den Brennereicharakter überdeckt - der ist noch zu 100% da.

Harkonnen1967 gave this whisky 88 points

Verglichen mit dem 14er OA habe ich eigentlich durch den doch starken Faßeinfluss kommt die fruchtige Note nur noch sehr wenig durch, bei ner Blindverkostung hätte ich ihn nicht als Arran erkannt.

Nase bisschen säuerlich schöne alte Sherry Noten. Auf der Zunge sehr spicy keine bitteren Holznoten, trockene Sherry noten und das Hols ist schmeckbar ähnlich wie bei Glenfarclas. Wenn ich ne Schnell beschreibung abgeben müsste würd ich sogar sage eine 50/50 Mix aus Glendronach Single Cask und nem alten Glenfarclas.
