Arran Barrel Reserve Bottling Note

Arran Barrel Reserve Reviews

Apple Juice and Citrus flavours

I had a 5cl miniature bottle of this Arran in a home made box of 24 assorted miniatures for the Christmas run in. Was looking forward to trying it having previously had a full bottle of the Arran Cask Finish. This American Oak Barrel finish is truly excellent though. Really get the Citrus flavours and nose and smooth as the day is long, smells more like apple juice than Whisky, an absolute Snip at around £30. I'll definitely be getting a bottle. Highly recommended 👌

A place in my cabinet

A great find from my local whisky shop. Like other reviewers, I purchased this on a whim. Very surprised, there will be a bottle in my cabinet. Very crisp, a bit tart but a nice "neat" dram.

I might have found a new favourite

Bought this today on a whim and it didn't dissapoint. Unbelievably good for the price, smooth, goes down way to easily! Summery, as the reviewer below says, but it's warming me from the inside right now on a cold winter's evening.

Great summer dram or for something fruity but green apple fresh.

Arrans new no age statement barrel reserve this drop is delicious, sweet lemony nose and green apples its taste is fresh vanilla but green apples and tart fruits with a hint of barrel spice. Non chill filtered and not colored I have nothing but respect for this Distillery.

Lovely little dram, nothing dramatic, superb.

Very light, for something at 43% , refreshing even, citrus but delicate, with a nice finish.

Lovely sweet and smooth.

Like all Arran whisky, this is so drinkable.

An absolute must try

One of the smoothest whiskeys I had the pleasure of drinking.
I gave some to a friend who doesn't like whiskey (having only tried Johnny Walker Red, I don't blame him) and he crossed to the right side.
