  2. Andytka3 scored this whisky 67 points Connoisseur

    N- Heats of burning paper envelop the citrus, peach and floral aromas. Lasting sharpness and pungent strength.

    P- Sweet malts, toasted bread and coffee. F- Medium, finishes what she should be. Likely rough entry and warming
    with spirity heats staying on. Sweet honey and bitterness remains.

    • Nose
      Very young and citrusy with some acidity. Fruits are in the foreground, removing vanilla and toffee. Due to age little seasoning and logging.
    • Taste
      Begin mildly (the first 3 seconds) and then come with full force and a lot of acidity. Therefore, I would have rated the ABV higher. Otherwise like the nose, with unripe fruits, little spice and little wood.
    • Finish
      Hot (pepper), acidity and some vanilla.

    • Nose
      Light. Some apple and pear. Malty with a little coriander.
    • Taste
      Peppery and grassy. Then some fruit with nuts.

  6. 11insomnium scored this whisky 69 points Expert Junior

    Nosing: Light, fresh, some fruit

    Tasting: sharpness, apple, herbs

    With water: a little more fruit

    Comment: Very simple with few flavors

  7. Blo scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Not my favorite, but a good coastal Entry-Level.
    • Nose
      Green apple, a little honey. It's quite dry, its island side is felt via saline notes in the background. A little smoke. It's quite simple but pleasant. The nose reminds me a bit of Kilkerran or some Bruichladdich.
    • Taste
      More malty than the nose, green apple notes still remain. Fairly light despite its 46%. And unfortunately that's about it ... maybe a little porridge and more malty notes then. Too bad because the nose seemed more engaging.
    • Finish
      Quite short, astringent and rather salty.

  8. jhut scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Slightly heavier than the Glenkinchie, simpler too. Again grass, but less fresh than the glenkinchie. Dark apples.
    • Taste
      fris, fruit. Citrus.
    • Finish
      H honest, little malt. Aftertaste keeps up pretty quickly. Dried fruit at the end

  9. Dris scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    A more or less refined whisky. Dominated by vanilla fresh citrus and a subtle salty maritime note. Not very complex...

    Testimonials Bernt Sjödin Arran 10Y, 46%; 1079: - Is a bottle of the first week's whisky produced at the distillery. There are three sherry hogshead, grabs 3.6 and 8 that have been bottled. A total of 1200 bottles of which 30 come to Sweden. Color: Light amber. Scent: Very wet nonsense, feeling mature, big. Taste: Full-bodied, mellow, big. Aftertaste: Long, nutty, sweetheart, a lot of sherry. Just my opinion, a deliciously good whisky to be only 10 years old. http://smad.se/provningar/Provning%2054%20Arran.html
