Colour: Ripe Golden Barley.
Nose: The initial rush of 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. Arran has come a long way in 10 years. Truly the best things in life are always worth waiting for!
