Arran 14 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Gavin D Smith for Whisky AdvocateThis expression from the Isle of Arran distillery appeared in 2010 and one-third of the component whiskies were matured in European oak casks while two-thirds came from American oak. Very fragrant and perfumed on the nose, with peaches, brandy, and ginger snaps, plus vanilla and mild oak. Smooth and creamy on the palate, with spicy summer fruits, apricots, and hazelnuts. The lingering finish is spicy, buscuity, and slowly drying, with just a hint of salt. 86 Points

Nose: oak, vanilla, malt, little caramel in background. Palate: Ligfht and creamy. Oak with sweet spices, choco-caramel with little malt. Finish is quite long; starting sweet, then spices kick in and dry finish. Nice dram. Much better with water!
Superb whisky! Arran 14 offers the same fruity tones as its younger version, namely the 10 YO expression; however, it is distinctly more complex and mature with longer finish with creamier texture. Arran most certainly delivers what the Speysider Cragganmore 12 promises yet fails to deliver: a smooth, perfumy, and fruity single malt that is the perfect choice for spring and summer.
