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.

I really like Arran, but the “no-frills” 10 year just doesn’t land with me. I find it a bit too bitter. I love their series of barrel finishes, though. The sauternes finished one is tops and a great summer dram. In my opinion, don’t let this bottle be the judge of what Arran can do.

Very pleasant nose with apple, lemon zest and subtle vanilla notes in the background. Got some cut grass after adding a little water. Palate is refreshing. Lot of apple and lemon again up front, but finish brings a lasting spiciness. Very good dram for the money.

Tons of orange and honey on the nose. Full body, mouth coating. A really well crafted one!
