Arran Port Cask Finish Bottling Note

Rich and full bodied, Arran seems to suit red wine, and this Port Cask finish is testament to that. Great maturity and at 50% for additional complexity. This expression was released in 2010.

Arran Port Cask Finish Reviews

Harsh, not sweet, spirit dominates

Really disappointed as I love a port finish. Very harsh, needs a good bit of water, sour grapefruit is the main note for me. Ok for the money and thirty euros like the guy below mentioned is ok, but £46?

A nuanced port finish

Aroma of vanilla and oak. In the mouth initially the citrussy (grapefruit yes, why not) and peppery character of the young spirit presents itself followed by waves of oakiness, red fruit and citrus, with pepper persisting throughout. Very distinct red berry note in the finish.

I wouldn't call this thin by any means. The port is very well integrated into the malt. The Arran character and the 8 years of virgin oak barrel aging really claim a prominent place, while the port influence is more nuanced.

Complex for it's age. I've had many lesser malts that were 12 years of age. I managed to pick this up for €30,- but wouldn't have complained if I'd paid double.

If you like smooth, sweet port cask finished whiskys it's hard to think of a better one

Brilliant. Luscious. Velvety.
Intrigued by some of the other reviews!!

Very nice

Easy to drink crisp and tasty

Disappointingly thin

For 50% and given the finish I found the Arran disappointingly thin and lacking the body and Rich port influence of the altogether much more wholesome Tomintoul or indeed something like a Quinta Ruban even the benromach which spends much less time in port casks has more guts about it. It's very spirity at 50% and water helps it a little but given its provenance - an island malt finished in port casks at cask strength, its very disapppointing to my palate, very middle of the road and quite dull.

Grapefruit? Really?!

I think maybe One dimensional got a bit confused with this one!!

One dimensional

Lots of grapefruit in both smell, taste and finish, not much else

Got this as an xmas present, love it, definitely needs a small amount of spring water with this one as it can be a little harsh otherwise. Especially compared to my favorite portwood finish which is the Tomintoul.

Great!

If you're looking for a full bodied whisky with a lot of layers of flavour, then this is it. The nose is light and fruity; the palate is a little sweet at first with a lot of dried fruit, it continues to a burst of spice from the 50%abv with a bit of salt and spice from the oak. Great whisky to sip on with a touch of water, it becomes very soft.
