  1. toklian scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    N23 P23 F23 B23

    It's all about pure malt here which drives me crazy about that Arran!
    Brilliant job!

  2. ScotchGuyTO scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Man oh man! 10 years with some quality barley can really showcase what Arran is all about. The sweets take first place in this dram, but as it develops in the glass more and more tropical fruits. The twinges of oak and tannin play in the finish with some alcohol heat making for a quite rewarding dram!
    • Nose
      88 88
      Vanilla pudding and white cedar chests. Fresh lumber and bakery notes. Biscuits and sweet cardamom syrup with citrus in there too. They typical Arran tropical fruit begins to muddle its way up as it opens, coconut and mango pudding with some more stone fruits (peach or yellow plum)
    • Taste
      87 87
      The palate is very light, sweet stone fruits and clementine syrup. More bakery notes, muffins or sweet cakes, something along that line. Rich syrup note and sweet barley grist in the bottom with bay leaf for sharpness.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Medium-Short; more on the shorter side. The vanilla takes hold and mingles with oak shavings and spice cake. White tea leaves and harsh tannins mingle with something like cooked spinach and more of the bay leaf note. Really quite someting fro 10 years!

  3. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    At the first sip (only) a yummy-keksig-robust cereal whisky, if you just a little further sniffs into it and it's then with the citrus, green herb and herb notes really interesting, for around 50-60 € was then 'ne great bottle.
    • Nose
      Cereal, a little vanilla & banana, a bit of hay and dry herbs, a touch of white pepper ... not too hot or closed, but I have the impression that could help a drop of water: on the one hand creamy, vanilla, white chocolate, on the other hand but also for a short time sharper, the white pepper is more intense, a splash of lemon is added ... then it's green again, melon peel, fresh green beans, hay
    • Taste
      crispy, biscuit, grainy ... shortbread, vanilla kipper, a little honey, browned toast, with white pepper again, with water shimmering slightly bitter bitter citrus notes, grapefruit, lime, and cucumber / melon peel
    • Finish
      long, warm, dry, somehow light and spicy, the white pepper and the corn sound, the bitter citrus notes are still there

  4. Torfding scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      less malty than expected, but the aroma is present; freshly cut grass with a little chives, slightly sweetish, vanilla, pear and other bright juicy fruits, yellow apples; Over time, the chives give way and make room for even more apple
    • Taste
      light apples and weeping fruits (especially light), spicy, some oak and a hint of tea
    • Finish
      medium length with an eternally long reverberation on the tongue; malty, spicy and strong, warming, the fruit notes are also here, a little salty and chocolaty

  5. Eilean a' Cheo scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    f: not very long, slightly sour

  6. Avdboom scored this whisky 84 points Member Senior

    N: Fresh fruity! Aromatich but not alcoholic. Next to the fruity there's a grassy touch, like mown wet grass. Not too sweet but mainly the freshness dominates.

    T: The taste doesn't keep up with the nose. Water improves it a bit, but still not on par... The tastes are in the same line as the nose.

    F: Short, clean and dry.

    C: Not spectacular. The nose is very promising, if only the palette and finish could keep on par... Tastes like too much water was added, only there’s still the alcoholic kick. I won't buy a bottle...

    I like Arran whisky in general, but this is an outstanding dram. Worth a try...

  8. Mr.Edradour scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur
