    This new version Arran 10 yo increased more percentage of sherry cask used,thus you could taste more sweet such as honey ,brown sugar.Anyway I would prefer this bottle than the older one.

    What a nice aroma:
    a fruity note paired with oak.
    Cherry and pear.
    He looks delicate, noble, smells like Vin Santo.
    There is an aromatic wood note, a little vanilla.

    Very strong in the mouth, can take a drop of water.
    Somewhat spicier in taste, becomes a bit bitter in the end.
    Very intense barrel notes.

    A very nice dram.
    No wonder Ralfy rated him so highly.
    The aroma is fantastic ...

    Arran, a friendly distillery, privately run, in a fantastic island location. So far, unfortunately, only a few whiskys from Arran have really picked me up, but I like to have an Arran in my glass every now and then to check the mood. I didn't know the 10yo before, and since I am very fond of whiskys of the same age from the peninsula, I thought that would be a good starting point to write another chapter in the book: "With Arran on you and you". It became a short chapter. At first there is hardly anything in the nose, then it stays pale on the tongue and, as if that wasn't enough, he says goodbye before dessert. Except for a slight alcoholic tinge on the palate, it has no active off-notes, but there is a clear lack of accents and even rudimentary exciting combinations of aromas that are not just “there” but also interact.

      Hm, it makes me fidget in my nose, it obviously takes a kickstart sip to get a little more nasal power - now a little better, then we can start.
      Hazelnut brittle, almonds, vanilla, honey and ginger biscuits. Maybe a hint of orange, but the aromas are difficult to separate from each other. Malty and slightly spicy.
    • Taste

      Dry start with a hazelnut / almond mixture, with orange biscuits, malt and honey. Milk chocolate, milk coffee. Makes a pure and clear impression - maybe a little too pure and clear. Over time, a slightly alcoholic sting that subsides after a while.

      Exit
      Nutty and malty, dry. Short rather than medium long.

      Not so long but packs some heat even this it's only 46% nutty aftertaste and some bitter dark chocolate

    I was kind of hyped by Ralfy’s Whisky of the year 2021, so really wanted to try this one. And it is a nice whisky! Mouth-filling, warm, sweet, fruity, and 46% suits it nicely! On the other hand, I might have too big expectations, so I kind of expected more:) But overall, it’s a decent dram for a great price and that’s what matters!
    • Nose
      84 84
      fruit, green apples, pears, sultanas, honey, some spice
    • Taste
      85 85
      full and sweet, definitely fruit, strawberry jam, apples, honey, malt, some bitterness comes with sour notes
    • Finish
      82 82
      Short to medium, not so strong, fades out rather fast, sweet, fruit, notes of oak wood
