Arran Lochranza Reserve


ABV: 43%

Aged in a mix of ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks
Cost : $40 (USD)


Arran is situaded on the Isle of Arran, between Campbeltown and Mainland. The distillery is most famous for having almost all its bottlings at 46%ABV and higher, or even cask strength, which is quite nice in an era where a lot of single malts are 40% !
This bottle was first matured in ex-Bourbon casks and then finished in Port casks. Wine finish (except Sherry) has really taken off in the last 10 years. So let’s see how it compares against other classics.


Color : light pale gold , honey.
Nose : Sweet, barley, dried citrus fruit, slight salt
Palate : salted covered green apple. With waves of light vanilla
Finish : short/medium. Slight oak and more marine air.
Comments : great for the price point would recommend as a daily sipper for beginner whisky drinker.
