  1. Bomshanka scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The new version of the old peated NAS Arran. Having never tried the old version, I can only judge on what is in the bottle before me, and take a side glance towards the reception of the older models. If the new 10 is anything to judge by, the whole rebranding did come with some genuine improvements over the board, and this little peater is no slouch either. Ticks the boxes except with regards to age, but definitely does not appear too young. Highly recommended at around the 45€ mark.

      Sweet, ripe stonefruit, gooseberry jam, raspberry and strawberry jams too. Banana. A bit of warm wood, then ignited to make wood smoke, cold ashes of an incinerated lemon glaced cheesecake.

      Sweet fruits, banana again, jams, honey dipped lemon sweets. Kiwifruit. All rolling around the bonfire.

      Lingering sweet smoke, cold ashes, lime juice sprinkles. Slightly drying, medium long.

  2. Izzino scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    The excellent price-performance ratio of this whisky always convinces me that it is really a very super whisky. Of course, I would place it in the category of the finer and more suitable ones for the beginning of smoke tasting, or for not even fully knowledgeable whiskys of this whisky character. However, she will certainly be enchanted rather than disappointed. The character is very pleasantly malty with stone fruit and very well balanced peat. The new design of the bottle is very eye-catching, although the label on the previous version seemed more premium.
