Arran 10 Year
Arran // Islands, Scotland
First released in 2006, this 10-year whisky is the flagship single malt from Arran located on the namesake island off the southwest coast of the mainland. This youthful single malt is a blend predominantly aged in ex-bourbon barrels with a small amount of ex-sherry casks used. It sees no coloring or chill-filtration before being bottled at a respectable 92 proof. Note: As of late 2019, this bottling got a makeover with an updated label with the rest of the core portfolio.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
Cask Typeex-bourbon, ex-sherry
"As you bring the glass to your nose, herbal and fruity aromas will greet you with notes of dry grasses, apple, honeydew, tart white raspberries, green raisins and delicate vanilla. On the palate this whisky has a pleasant rich creamy texture and flavors of tart green apple, big biscuity malts, and dried citrus peels. The finish lingers with a slightly syrupy citrus tail and toasted malt that speaks to the purity of this youthful island single malt. "
