Nose:
Exotic spices, exotic fruits, vanilla, sweetness, cinnamon
Taste:
Full, sweet, fruity, cinnamon, cocoa, oak spices, vanilla
Finish:
Oily, smooth
Nosing:
The initial rush of rich vanilla sweetness gives way to the fruits of slow distillation – kiwi, banana, cantaloupe melon – with just a dusting of cocoa powder. It is undoubtedly complex and yet the aromas are in complete harmony with the malt.
Taste:
A touch of cinnamon adds a spicy edge to the soft and sweet texture which captivates the palate. The classic Arran citrus notes have rounded with age and reveal new depths of character against a background of sweet oak.
Finish:
It drifts over the tongue like golden syrup and fades ever so slowly to tempt another sip. This is a beautifully made whisky.

Being a rather young distillery (ESTḌ 1995), Isle of Arran is producing some cracking good whisky. The use of high quality casks, 46% ABV, no chill-filtration and natural color gives you an optimal version of a Single Malt. Unlike other Island whiskies, Arran 10 features an unusual tropical character. On the nose, there are exotic fruits, such as papaya, melon and kiwi. The taste is mildly spicy and almost syrupy with cinnamon, sweet vanilla and complex fruity notes, whereas the oak is keeping in the background. A characterful dram with a soft and bittersweet finish.
