Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Gavin D Smith for Whisky Advocate

    This 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

    A go-to whisky. The Arran 14 has a wonderful nose and even better flavor. Light, delicate, but complex - with a sharp kick. It has a nice grapey/apple arrival that lingers with some spicy elements. Great all-around whisky that's a pretty good value.

    First tried this whiskey at the Arran distillery. Ordering from you it arrived within days and was very well packaged.

    To me this is a good single malt but struggle to say great. Definitely has some nice characteristics, apricots, toffee and plenty of spice. I would definitely recommend it but to me its drinks like a younger malt with some sharp notes which are exemplified by its coastal salty character. (Perhaps this is just my taste, but i do love talisker and the islay salty malts) By all means give it a go but i probably won't be buying another bottle

    Brillant! A wonderful single malt. A deep complex taste,smooth and very different to other single malts I have tasted. Recomended.

    I Have tried several single malts, there is usually no single malt that I don't like, all different, all with your place in the world (except those who for some reason comes with a strange taste of throw away, as has happened to me 2 times, some people have already commented something like taste of sulfur?). However there are some of those that emerges in our list of preferences for its quality on the palate, clean and flawless, with a sequence of flavours always with the malt flavor that I really appreciate. With Arran 14 I don't feel flaws, but a good balance between the flavors (that I don't distinguish), with pleasant spicy and a slight effervescence, always with an excellent malt flavor. I think any fan of whiskey will not be indifferent to this arran 14, and some will find here a top whisky.

    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.
