Whisky Reviews for Arran 1996

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.10 points

  1. Noface83 scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    Nose: very fruity and sweet, slightly perfumed soap sweetness, tangerine juice, pineapple, light lemon acidity, rice wine, fresh cut oak, pencil shavings, vanilla, some pepper and cinnamon Great thing - Arran fits wonderfully together with Bourbon Casks - lots of fruit, sweetness and pleasant fresh wood notes.

    Taste: surprisingly spicy, first again a lot of fruit and honey sweetness then an incredibly creamy hazelnut note, nutmeg and a fine wood aroma with strong espresso bitter notes. In the medium-long finish, then again bitterness and nougat then comes a slight perfume sweetness and vanilla and again neat wood and yes then again some pineapple back out. Great twist to the nose but a little more fruit flavor I would have preferred.
    Super bottling with dreamlike bourbon cask nose, interesting twist and good finish. Price borderline but still ok for presentation and quality. Clear buy recommendation if you like bourbon cask and intensive wood.

    Vey decent Bourbon cask with typical Arran nose and taste, but probably needs more time + oxygen to disclose its full potential as most cs bottles do. Will adjust my rating accordingly if it gets (even) better and smoother in time. Thus far not a dud at all but no stellar release, either. Also thanks wb for the pretty presentation! ;-) 87p.Update 11/4/18
    It's gotten better already, air helps 88p.

    Update 17/4/18

    Jep, showing its true colors now! 89p.

    • Nose
      Very sweet and very fruity, on mandarins with a hint of lemon. Vanilla notes with a hint of spice. A little woody touch, that could maybe let you think to a new barrel.
    • Taste
      Very fruity, here too, but almost monotonous, I would have preferred a real fruit salad. But you’ve got a nice honeyed sweetness and a wonderful creamy sensation that counterbalances this little lack of complexity. There’s still this woody touch but the spices notes are more powerful than with the nose. By the way, would you like some vanilla too? Hoooo yes, sir, with pleasure. (Hoot, that’s it, I’m talking again all alone, poor me).
    • Finish
      Moderately long, with vanilla and the same woody touch.
