Great malt whisky is a distillation of the place where it’s made. The local water, microclimate and air quality all influence the spirit as it’s distilled and matured. Isle of Arran whisky couldn’t come from anywhere else but this wee island, of twenty miles by ten. This whisky is the island, bottled. This geography is key to the character of Arran whisky. Here they make a spirit that reflects a range of regional influences, yet achieves a rare and unique personality all its own. Rather like the island itself.
This is the classic expression of Arran - the fresh and unique island style is captured beautifully in this 10 Year Old Single Malt.
The Arran 10 Year Old has the colour of ripe golden barley. The initial rush of rich vanilla sweetness on the nose gives way to a touch of cinnamon which adds a spicy edge to the soft and sweet texture. The classic Arran citrus notes have rounded with age and reveal new depths of character against a background of sweet oak. The flavours are of sweetness, apple and citrus.
