Arran Single Malt set out to create a new Single Malt worthy of your daily dram, and they have accomplished that task.

Harold Currie was a senior director of Chivas. He somehow got it in his head that he could do Whisky better. Harold was also a fan of the Isle of Arran — an island in the middle of the Firth of Clyde which had at one time been home to at least fifty illegal distilleries. So he saved his pennies, took on a few investors, and broke ground on his dream in 1994. But two golden eagles built a nest on site and construction had to be stopped until the chicks were fully fledged. Solid move, right? Today, they produce a tidy range of Single Malt offerings, limited editions, special blends, and a Scottish cream Liqueur.

Turns out good old Harold COULD do it better.

The team at Arran decided to create a new core Single Malt that could take a place of honor as your daily dram. Arran Barrel Reserve Scotch Whisky is the result of that effort. It is the signature Single Malt Spirit that Arran is known for. It’s been aged exclusively in ex-Bourbon casks. And it is delivered at 43% ABV. It is perfectly lovely in cocktails. But please… do yourself a favor and take the first dram neat.

Finish
The finish is medium-length and alive with notes of toasted oak and orchard fruits.

Very easy sipping

While there is a bit of complexity and a nice rounded finish, people who don't always choose whisky first for a drink will be pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable it is.
