ARRAN 17 ans 2000 Sherry Oloroso LMDW Cellar Book Of 54,6%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands-arran, 70cl, Ref: 53579

Right from the beginning, the first word that comes to mind when describing this Arran is “harmonious”. On the olfactory front, there is incredible balance between its floral, fruity, malty and woody notes. On the gustatory front, it then easily moves from a remarkably energetic register to more gourmand sequences, each more expressive than the last. To this, add a finish that revisits each ingredient found on the nose and palate, further imprinting them on our memory. A work of art.

Profile: the nose is initially roasted and floral before revealing an extremely fruity and malted character. With a rare energy, the palate is at first strongly spiced. It then develops with notes of sweet pastry (panettone). The finish is resinous, salty and remark ably malty.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : burnished gold with copper tinges.
  • Nose : fresh and lively. The initial nose reveals beautiful notes of roasted coffee on a foundation of heady florals (lily of the valley, white lilac) and musk. Further in, we find huge amounts of fresh fruit (apple, pear, peach) and creamy, generous notes of vanilla. Allowed to breathe, citrus fruits (lime, grapefruit) liven up the aromatic palette, which now focuses on malted barley and noble wood.
  • Palate : firm, energetic and formidable. An initial veil of strong spices (clove, nutmeg, star anise) sets the tone. Next follow notes of marmalade, spice bread and toasted walnuts which temper the ardour of the attack. Increasingly influenced by sweet pastries and brioche, it takes on notes of panettone. Corinthe raisins, dried fruit (fig, date) and citrus fruit form a gustatory image that is both generous and lustrous. The end of the palate is particularly malty.
  • Overall : long, very sappy. With its notes of Vosges bonbons, the finish emphasizes its fresh, resinous character. Perfectly balanced, it revisits in turn the elements found on the nose and the palate, adding a thirst-quenching pinch of salt. The retro-nasal olfaction wavers between malted barley - the humidity of a malting floor - delicate woody notes (oak) and salted butter caramel. The empty glass is mentholated and roasted (coffee, tea).

The brand

The Isle of Arran has come a long way and their 10 year old whisky, bottled for some years now, has raised the distillery to the ranks of the great whisky producers. The particularity of Arran whisky is in its finishes, carried out in a wide variety of casks that previously contained wine (from Champagne, Margaux or Marsala) or even brandy (Cognac, calvados). The distillery is also known for producing whisky with various forgotten types of barley, as well as a series of vintage single casks, often bottled at cask strength. Produced on an island near the Scottish mainland, its style is more like Highland malt. Find out more
