It’s still one of the hidden Whisky gems of the Scottish islands.

Harold Currie was a senior director at Chivas. He somehow got it in his head that he could do better. Harold was also a fan of the Isle of Arran — an island in the middle of the Firth of Clyde which had at one time been home to at least fifty illegal distilleries. So he saved his pennies, took on a few investors, and broke ground on his dream in 1994. But two golden eagles built a nest on site and construction had to be stopped until the chicks were fully fledged. Solid move, right? Today, they produce a tidy range of Single Malt offerings, limited editions, special blends, and a Scottish cream Liqueur. 

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again… Isle of Arran is one of those “Whiskey-insider” secrets. But if you are new to their Whiskies, it’s understandable that when you see the word “Isle” in the distillery name you think that this is a peaty dram. It’s not. There’s nary a trace of smoke or peat. Instead, the entire Arran line is smooth and fruit-forward in an almost Highland style. Arran 10 Year Old Whisky is their core offering — medium-bodied, filled with notes of citrus zest, and bottled without chill-filtering at an absolutely perfect 46% ABV.

Michael
Michael,
What the citrus and the honey bring the harshness drowns out. Its almost as if it is too young. Not worth a bottle.
 
Jamie
Jamie,
Flavor almost too subtle, not sure I have a handle on this with just one dram. Found it more spicy than sweet.
 
Tony
Tony,
At first the bouquet so far outpaced the taste, but at the third sip the flavors opened up and were almost as interesting. The finish was best on the first sip, but as I started to get all the early flavors in later tastes, the finish started to disappoint.
 
Tristan
Tristan,
Light pale color. Sweet citrus nose with some sandalwood and maple. It’s sweet on the palate with just a little spice. I’m not a huge fan of this.
 
Kelly
Kelly,
It was a bit harsh neat. I added a few drops of water and that helped a lot. It was fine, but not fantastic.

Very sweet and enjoyable
 
Gordon
Gordon,
A pleasant tasting malt, but lacking something to make it outstanding. Good everyday dram which does not leave a morning after headache.
 
Charles
Charles,
Lightly sweet with a little spice. Nice clean finish but does not linger very long.

Alex,
I really enjoyed this single malt. I'm a huge fan of spicy food, so the spicy sweet notes in this whiskey hit the spot. Even though the spiciness is not too bold, you will definitely notice it. If you don't like spiciness at all, this drink is not for you. The spiciness hits first with the sweet apple, then you're left tingling as the single malt takes full affect. Not an everyday drink, but enjoyable for weekends or an especially relaxing night.
