    Bottled in 2017. Arran needs to be highlighted as a distillery that is currently improving. I still have a bottle of Arran 10 from 2013, and it is pretty bad. So, even as recently as 7-8 years ago, this distillery was putting out bad whisky. Now, they are releasing modern masterpieces. The new 10, 14, and 18 year olds I have tried, and they are all great; but it is the 14 that is spellbinding. Precision and complexity. That’s difficult to pull off, but this whisky does that with a delicate balance of cream and green. Vanilla custard. Green apples and citrus with powdered sugar. Kiwi and cucumber with caramel. A welcomed sharp kick of ginger and sage on the finish with the soft oakiness reminiscent of a much more expensive Japanese whisky. When sipping on this dram, it feels like a creation with real intention, like it was authored. When buying, be sure to get the modern appearing bottles. Unlike with most other distilleries, you want to avoid any dusty old-fashioned bottles. Score: ** (unimaginably good) How much does a bottle cost: $70-100 How much do I think a bottle is worth: $150

    Tonight's Whisky of the Night comes to us courtesy of the Isle of Arran! This is one that I have only recently seen in the AZ market and being a fan of island malts was excited to give it a try. Unpeated, unfiltered and bottled at 46% ABV with 12 yrs in Bourbon barrels and final 2 years in Sherry and 1st Fill Bourbon Casks. Let's dive into the tasting: Lovely mouthcoating entry that's reminiscent of the Old Pulteney 17 (not as good but similar) entry. Honey and vanilla compliment peach and citrus notes. Candied ginger as well which leads to oak, pepper and sea breeze driven finish. The finish is astringent but oddly it works very well with the way this malt is constructed. All in all was surprised by this malt, I hear a lot it's a good value malt. I'd argue it's just a good malt period. Cheers All!
