isle of arran 10 yo stone label | 46%
A 50ml miniature of Isle of Arran 10 yo Stone Label . Island Single Malt Whisky from Arran distillery in Scotland. Released in +/- 2009 at 46% abv.
A very clean, mildly fruity and malty spirit, with whiffs of smoke and a very faint ‘coastality’ that reminds me a bit of Bruichladdich. There’s still a bit of porridge and other boiled cereals in the background, signs of youth. Globally pretty fine.
Sweet, rather nervous, excellently balanced, with a lot of pear drops, a little ginger, cider apples and just hints of kiwis and gooseberries. Very clean spirit.
Long, clean, sweet, with a rather nervous aftertaste. Oranges.
