    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.

    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.
    • Finish

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

      creamy, orange peel is back in the taste, alcohol is stronger in taste than the smell, sharp woody taste, not so spicy but still strong,
