Arran 10 Bottling Note

Officially launched in 2006, this 10 year old lies at the heart of the Isle of Arran range and exudes all the honeyed richness we have come to associate with the island distillery.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Herbal, biscuity, hedgerow greenness and dried grass, like a long English summer's afternoon.

Palate: Sweet. Quite malty, digestive biscuits, followed by green fruits and Cox's apple peel.

Finish: Slightly bitter, maltiness.

User Reviews of the Arran 10 Year Old


Bought a bottle after a distillery tour and tasting. Tried most of the range and really enjoyed.
Light and herby on nosing with a green apple flavour. I have ordered more!!

Well worth it

For the price, and the nose/favour which hits you with green apples and other sharp fruit, it's well worth it. Lovely.

Disappointing dram

When I read these comments about Arran 10 yo, together with the fact that its unchillfiltered, Natural colour and 46 abv, there was no thought in my mind that This whisky could be bad. To be honest, it's not all bad, but defenitly not good as well, in my opinion. It is pretty sharp in the palate and has not much, not to day no, depth. I am really disappointed and worked my way through the bottle by using it for Irish Coffee!!! Which I never did with any whisky before. No more Arran stuff for me, until a future tasting convinces me of the good taste of other bottlings of Arran.

Had to order this one special from my local shop here in Cali and it was worth the wait.Smells like straight caramel apples and tastes like honey,flowers, sweet oak,vanilla,caramel,green apples and pears and just a hint of sea air.This is gorgeous stuff really light and not smoky at all but a really pleasant dram nonetheless plus its 46% natural color and non chill filtered need I say more? If I want something smoky I have all kinds of Islay's and other peated single malt whisky to choose from who needs Johnnie walker anyways I'll take an Arran(which is an independant distillery and is not in JW).

Excellent but overpriced

Arran 10 is a sweet, dominant component of Johnnie Walker Black, minus the smoke. It's really, really good, but I miss the smoke/peat. And Johnnie Black is $20 cheaper.

Love This Scotch!

This is a new Single Malt for me and it tastes great. To me it has a fine Sherry taste. The only problem I see is that I can't get it at my local Pa. State Store!

Great Value

The Arran 10 held its own and I thought complemented the Ancnoc 12. I like to taste scotches side by side as I am new to this. It helps me discern the differences in the regions and in the different flavor profiles.
I found the Arran to be slightly sweet. You can pick up the honey flavour, but the best part was a little bit of bitterness on the back end. Taste like green apples. I enjoyed the complexity of this Scotch. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for beginners or for people that don't appreciate the subtle changes in taste, but it would be a nice find for others to try. Great value

Nice Little Island Whiskey

I agree with last speaker but I don't enjoy it as much as anon seems to do. In fact this is not what I'm looking for at all. The taste is boooring.

Nice Little Island Whisky

From a neat pour there's not too much on the nose. Some tart green apples, green grass, salt, and a fresh baked yeast roll with butter and honey. The palate is sweet and oily with a continuation of the green apple notes. The finish is quick and somewhat dry, however I found it quite enjoyable overall. At first the aftertaste is somewhat 'sterile' and tart, but that quickly goes away with continued enjoyment. Wonderful little dram!

22nd February 2015

Impressive for the price

This malt is impressive in its relative complexity for its age. The nose is busy, spicy, honey, green apples, slight cinnamon. Taste wise, a bit more simple than the nose. Butterscotch, apples, the barley comes through. With an explicit mention of age, no color added, no chill filtration, 46% ABV, a true craft whisky.

22nd January 2015

Young and vibrant

First off this is of exeptional value! ! Wait and see aran malt jump in price once they get more established. Fruity nose kinda reminds me of a glenlivet but less... generic. This is a 10 year old so dont expect great complexity but this one is rather vibrant for a 10 year old! Gotta love the fact that there are no artificial colors and that it is un chillfiltered.. thus is where all scotch companys should invest in!! Support the small giys not the mega distilleries. . These guys are doing it the right way!

Great Value for money

Am not a big fan of Isle whiskeys. Gave Arran a chance and was pleasantly supprized. Not to smokey but does leave a taste. Very Nice. No match to the stronger peaty whiskeys like Ardbeg and the likes but a nice soft drop.

14th November 2014


I find to to be quite spicy in a way, although in a good way. Spicy, a kick in the mouth, and lingering sweet taste after you swallow it. Definitely has that malt taste, and quite an enjoyable smell. Not really an expert, but I enjoy this whisky.

2nd November 2014

Very good

Its really good, I totally recommend it, I'm no expert but I do enjoy whisky and in that field I can say this is a very nice whisky for the price.

3rd October 2014


My favorite whiskey so far. I prefer to drink it with "lots" of water.:) The taste is then mild and round.

27th September 2014


The best 10-year whisky in my opinion. Light nose, but great taste. A "must taste"

7th June 2014

Easy drinking

Like this a lot, light color, nose does not tell all, vanilla dry light honest whisky from a beutiful island, will always come back to this 10 year old, well done Arran!

21st September 2013

Great potential

Could sense that this could be good with a few more years in the cask as the whisky was well balanced, but a little rough around the edges, and a little on the 'spirity' side. Perhaps the 12 or 14 year old might be more to my liking

24th May 2012

Genle Arran, Meek and Mild

I like this whiskey a lot, delicate, and aromatic. I can see why another reviewer gave it low marks and said 'it doesn't have much to it' - because it is very soft and light. I love it for contrast. It is a whiskey I will start an evening with, a long time before I hit the peated Islay malts!

10th December 2011


I love this whisky. Very aromatic with lots of grape on the nose. The flavour is rich and malty with fruit and licorice. A bit sharp, perhaps, but excellent overall.

3rd September 2011

Different but in a nice way...

(Fin)Kannattaa kokeilla.

7th July 2011

Different continued

Sorry forgot to rate it

17th September 2010

Different but in a nice way....

Sweet character full character with what I can only say is an "ultra dry finish" definately a love it or hate it thing. I like variety and this one is interestingly different yet not overly so. Think "dry" Glengoyne or Aberlour.

17th September 2010

Not the best

It might be to some people's taste, but it's not for me. It doesn't have much to it but doesn't seem to cope with the "alcohol" very well, in a sort of mouthwash-type way. There are better malts out there for the same money
