Sorry about this...

Arran 14 Bottling Note

The 2010 release from Arran, the 14 year old replaces the previous benchmark, the 12. This was finished in fresh bourbon and sherry hogsheads 2 years before it was bottled. The result is a sweet, fruity arran with all that wonderful malt we love!

Arran 14 Year Old Reviews

Taste and value....what else do you want?

A very nice change of pace from my Islay fixation. Floral, fruity but with substance. And a great value here in Canada.

30th June 2019

A one-time buy for me.

Nothing special. Sweet medicinal nose. Peppery and bitter oak finish.

13th January 2019


Really disappointed in this one. Just cant pinpoint flavours, which is no fun. Clynelish 14 miles better. Wont buy again!!!

Sweet finish at 46%, and it grows on you

Nice spicy hit to start, great mouthfeel, perfect at 46% to open up with a few drops of water, just the right amount of baking spice and heather before a long raisin finish. This will be a crowd pleaser that will also please the picky. Not everyone's cup of tea, I presume, but I know where my Cardhu and Bowmore are if I need smoke or peat for the evening. Very impressed, will be going down to the 10 yr next, and trying whatever other cask finished Arran offerings are available in Ontario. At about $90 CDN, this delivers big value.

Arran 14 Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Caramel and chocolate and licorice. Pungent green countryside summer smells. Nettles and weeds and ferns and thistles. Bit yogurty too. Really deep caramel. Fragrant. Rich.

Super moreish!!

20th April 2018

Love, love, love it.

Big upgrade on the 10 year for me. Loads of notes of stewed fruits and spices. Big and long. Great mouthfeel too.

Arran 14 Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Chocolate Heaven チョコレート天国!!

19th February 2018

Good whisky for the price range .

As mentioned a solid whisky for the price . As good as many bottles twice the price .

Love sherry finished whisky, but not the biggest fan of this one.

Personal taste but a bit sickly sweet for me , great flavour and nose . Very oily. Little heat in the finish.

Nice enjoyable whisky but won't blow you away.

Maybe a little critical, was hoping this would become my go to daily dram but it's not quite there.

Enjoyable but lacking a bit in complexity .

Convinced me to try the 18 👍

Great representative of Island whiskies

Just finished a tasting of 12 different whiskies. Rock Oyster from Douglas Laing came out on top, followed by this Arran close second, followed by The Hakushu at third place.

distinctly different from the 10yo

creamy caramel. salty licorice. nettles. pears, but you'll have to go looking for them.

not as malty as I'd been led to believe.

oakier than the 10 - good oaky: harmonizes with the rest of the flavors.

intense. dense. delicious.

Malt and fruit, sugar and spice

I really like this. I picked up an older bottling on a duty-free island for a ridiculously low price and was quite keen to try it as it ticked all the basic boxes -- higher ABV, NCF, no colouring, and hey, it has a proper age statement. The Arran 14 has a fruity nose with a bit of spice layered in and it's pretty easy to pick up the subtle Bourbon cask influence. On the palate, it's creamy and balanced, though not overly complex -- quite malty, which works really well here. I pick up stone fruits and vanilla, with the sweet attack nicely complemented by a full body and delightfully spicy finish. The sweetness lingered beautifully on the sides of my tongue long after the whisky had been swallowed. Frightfully easy to drink with a few drops of water added. Really a nice effort from The Arran -- and very much recommended. If this were a peated whisky, it would rocket to the top of my list, but as it is, it's still right up there among my new favourites.

Yeasty malts

After the misses left me, malty goodness was the only escape. 9/10, could do with more yeast.

27th April 2017

Very nice whisky

This is a well crafted whisky. I find good young whisky are driven by excellent quality grain and careful distillation. As excellent aged whisky are the above with with the addition of good quality cask maturation. This whisky is a young whisky coming of age. I had a whisky tasting with friends and this was the first of 6 whisky's and a perfect choice. Will buy again.

Well done Arran!

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.

Deliciously sweet

Apricot, sweet citrus fruits, and sea spray. This is like walking along an empty, foggy beach with an old dock in the background eating an apricot. Delicious flavors and so drinkable. I have been drinking scotch for about 2 years now and this is easily my favorite.

9th October 2016

Thin for its abv

Respect for an non-chillfiltered and no additional colour product!

Lovely nose... Peaches, oranges, vanilla, oak.

I expected a thicker and more full-bodied whisky, more complexity. Lack of maturity on the palate. No taste wave, but it's harmony there, and it's an ok dram with hint of salt in the finish. Ok for its price.

I think the distillery needs more time to develop more refined products. 1995 is not a long time ago when it comes to evolution...

Nice and fruity tried a double in Arran whish id bought that rather than the Lochranza single malt , fruity and smooth a pleasant surprise

21st July 2016

Mind blowing

Best whisky I ever tasted in this price group. So addictive it should be banned. Yummie..

12th June 2016

Really nice

Really solid. This has a very nice long spicy finish.

3rd June 2016

Well done!

UCF, NC, 46%, Ralfy's best of the Arran range, sherry, strong fruit, full, complex, citrus & spicy finish…long.

Why are there so many malts 2x to 3x this price that are thin, weak, colored, and simple? Keep producing Arran!

2nd June 2016


very good smooth

13th April 2016

A good dram.

Lovely stuff. Tried a batch of samples from across the different regions, and settled on Arran 14.

Not too sweet, Not too nippy. Leaves a warm glow, as a good dram of malt should.

31st December 2015


This certainly hits my sweet spot. Lovely nose with sherry and a meadow of wild flowers in high summer. Perfectly balanced with good chewy mouth feel, toffee, vanilla, honey, flowers, hint of almond, no burn and a long, lingering finish full of spices and a little liquorice root. Absolutely marvellous. I'll be back for another bottle of this for sure.

30th November 2015

Beautifully Sweet, still delicate

I was looking for something different from my usual pot stills and this was recommended by a local off license owner.

It is fantastic. The nose is massive sherry with some floral notes.
On drinking it becomes very floral, with a lot of sweeter notes, I get slight marzipan, honey & heather and a tiny bit of toffee.
The finish lingers just long enough to enjoy and has some nice spices in there.

Fantastic whisky and a great one to add variety to any collection. I will always have a bottle of this.

3rd August 2015

Like it

Impressive whisky. Fresh, sweet and full. Arran goes in the right direction.

10th May 2015

Good Christmas Beginnings

We found this dram to be pleasantly creamy, a nice vanilla tinge, with complex blossomy undertone, with an after taste of charred wood.

15th December 2014

great whisky

in my top 3 of all time - and i have had a lot of good whisky!

7th December 2014

Unbelievable bottling

10/10 that is all

6th December 2014

the best

Forget the price, this is as good as bottles i have had which are 5x the price. Simply stunning whisky.

18th November 2014

good stuff

Was hesitating in buying it.... What a good choice. Real good stuff.

1st October 2014

very nice

I'm finishing the last dram of the bottle just now. I've really enjoyed it. Fruity citrus, vanilla, a hint of honey, note of apple blossom and sea salt? Warm. Pull on your wool sweater, put it in a flask and take it on a walk along the shore or a hill top.

30th May 2014

The body and character of a scotch with the finesse of a an Irish whisky

Smooth and fiery with a fruity body with a creamy vanilla malt finish. Bought this on recommendation and could not be happier with it.

7th April 2014


This is a very good whisky

22nd March 2014

Lovely !

Having read mixed reviews about this malt, my curiosity finally got to me and i purchased a bottle. And i am so glad that i did. This is a very very good whisky! Fullbodied, sweet, fruity, balanced and a little heat in finish. And i just love the nose on this one. Pluss it's bottled at 46%, no coloring and non chill filtring, well done Arran ! Will definitely buy another bottle when i have finished this one.

Love from Norway

For the Educated.

Isle of Arran distillers are now producing real quality malts and this is a cracker! Lots of zesty fruit with that wonderful trademark Arran golden spice. I truly feel that these are best appreciated by an educated drinker such as myself but of course they are available to anyone.
