The Arran 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml (Scotland)
Arran 10yo is a medium-bodied, citrussy dram that shows an elegance and deftness of touch that belies the distillery’s youth. Tasting the complexity and assurance of this youngster it is difficult to believe that the distillery only opened in 1995. A great achievement.
Nose: Herbal, biscuity, hedgerow greenness and dried grass, like a long English summer’s afternoon.
Palate: Sweet. Quite malty, digestive biscuits, followed by green fruits and Cox’s apple peel.
Finish: Slightly bitter, maltiness.
