Arran 10 Year Old Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1020667 Whisky Advocate

 A fruity-sweet whisky (but still quite light and lively), with notes of orange marmalade, lemon meringue pie, and apricot. There’s also an underlying vanilla maltiness that is balanced nicely by oak spice on the finish. A respectable effort for a 10 year old and versatile enough to drink any time of the day (but I would prefer it before dinner). (JH, Spring-2007)

K&L Notes

This is a special price on this fantastic single malt of Isle of Arran. The 10-year-old starts maturing in bourbon casks. Woodford Reserve bourbon is one of the sources of bourbon casks for Arran, and is very similar to Arran as a distillery in the US. Then at Gordon Mitchell's discretion, the Distillery Manager at Arran, the whisky is moved to refill sherry, and for the last year of its life finished in fresh sherry casks. It is medium-amber in color and there is a lot of rich oil in the whisky. Crème brulee, caramel, citrus notes, fresh apple, and pear are apparent on the nose. The palate is creamy with elegance and a lovely balance and complexity that come through with a nice, long finish. This is a beautiful dram and a great way to be introduced to the wonderful malts being created on the Isle of Arran! 46% ABV

This single malt is for those looking for a malt that does not have any smokey flavors. The Arran 10 year old is bright and refreshing and packed full of round juicy fruit flavors. It is pure with a nice balanced finish. Almost too easy to drink and like.

I often overlook this Single malt; it is easy to do when looking at our shelves, but after trying this recently, no more. This small independently owned distillery is new, just about 15 years old. Their entry level whisky should be in everyone’s liquor cabinet. Medium rich with a great blend of both Bourbon and Sherry barrels; this is a whisky with no edges. It as easygoing and comfortable as a broken-in lay-z-boy. Perfect for kicking back and forgetting about your day, it will not challenge you with its complexity but indulge you with caramel, crème Brule, heather and a touch of apple.
