Dram Of The Day; Arran Single Malt Scotch Whisky 10 year old 46% Non Chill Filtered 70cl
Whisky by Taste: Light Delicate Whisky
Arran Single Malt Scotch Whisky 10 year old 46% Non Chill Filtered 70cl
The colour is reminiscent of ripe golden barley
On the nose there is an initial rush of vanilla sweetness that gives way to the fruits of the slow distillation process - kiwi, banana, cantaloupe melon can be detected with just a dusting of cocoa powder. It is undoubtedly complex and yet the aromas are in complete harmony with the malt.
The palate reveals a hint of cinnamon that adds a spicy edge to the soft and sweet texture captivating the palate. The classic Arran citrus notes have rounded with age and reveal new depths of character against a background of sweet oak.
The Finish 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!
