Arran 10 Year Old
Tasted as part of my first trip to the Highlander Hotel Whisky Club and their Arran night
Next up was the Arran 10 Year Old, the entry level dram from Arran, there was a bit of debate and this certainly wasnt everyones cup of tea but for an entry level dram this is a cracking little spice pot, i was also impressed to note that their entry level dram was also Non Chill Filtered and free from artificial colouring.
Officially launched in 2006, this 10 year old lies at the heart of the Isle of Arran range and exudes all the honeyed richness we have come to associate with the island distillery.
Vanilla is the strongest note followed by fruits with ripe green banana being the main note with honeydew melon following
more tangyness coming from hints of nutmeg and cinnamon with touches of banana and vanilla
sweet ripe banana and a kick of spice
