General description

Really pleasant as a light, fruity whisky. Steel, apple, and a bit of apricot come over on the nose, with a palate that has the same orchard fruit notes, along with tones of vanilla and a certain weird acidity, though it isn’t unpleasant. Really nice whisky, but doesn’t beat others.

Nice and light with lots of sweet honey and vanilla notes. Certainly an easy drinker and an inoffensive dram however it lacks any real depth of character.

Nice flavor profile but you can tell it is on the young side. A nice enjoyable dram. On the sweet and creamy side but not well defined. Overall a good dram, forcing me to seek out more from Arran.

General description

10/7/15. 86/100. A young fresh nose of cream and a touch nutty sweet candy and salty peat. Deep down there seems to be a medicinal character as well. The palate has a creamy texture with a defined fireyness, it maintains a lot of sweet malt and medium zesty peat.

General description

Ottimo whisky per avere solo 10 anni. Al naso note di frutta e sentori di vaniglia. In bocca si presenta lo sherry, la dolcezza liscia e pulita seguita da note leggermente speziate di pepe e cannella. Sul finale il malto persiste in bocca.
