Ripe Golden Barley The initial rush of vanilla sweetness gives way to the fruits of slow distillation - kiwi, banana, cantaloupe melon - with just a dusting of cocoa powder. It is undoubtedly complex and yet the aromas are in complete harmony with the malt. A touch of cinnamon adds a spicy edge to the soft and sweet texture which captivates the palate. The classic Arran citrus notes have rounded with age and reveal new depths of character against a background of sweet oak. It drifts over the tongue like golden syrup and fades ever so slowly to tempt another sip. This is a beautifully made whisky. Arran has come a long way in 10 years. Truly the best things in life are always worth waiting for!

Wine EnthusiastAn uninteresting bouquet. The palate entry is concentrated, spirity, very oaky and lacking in grain or fruit; the spirit settles down at midpalate and a sweet, nougat-like taste emerges and dominates. Concludes a tad too warm and resiny. Drinkable, with some good traits, but a misfire.
