Whisky Reviews for Arran 10-year-old
32 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.26 points
- 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.
— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
- For about 30 euros a satisfactory price-performance ratio
Very young and citrusy with some acidity. Fruits are in the foreground, removing vanilla and toffee. Due to age little seasoning and logging.
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.
Hot (pepper), acidity and some vanilla.
Light. Some apple and pear. Malty with a little coriander.
Peppery and grassy. Then some fruit with nuts.
- Nosing: Light, fresh, some fruit
Tasting: sharpness, apple, herbs
With water: a little more fruit
Comment: Very simple with few flavors
- Not my favorite, but a good coastal Entry-Level.
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.
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.
Quite short, astringent and rather salty.
Slightly heavier than the Glenkinchie, simpler too. Again grass, but less fresh than the glenkinchie. Dark apples.
fris, fruit. Citrus.
H honest, little malt. Aftertaste keeps up pretty quickly. Dried fruit at the end
- 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
