ARRAN 10 YEAR OLD Bere Barley

Single Malt, Scotland / Highlands-arran, 70cl, Ref: 18787

Distilled in 2004 using one of the oldest varieties of barley, indigenous to the Orkney Islands, Arran Orkney Bere Barley was produced in collaboration with the agronomy institute that is also present on these islands in the very north of Scotland. This variety of six-rowed barley sowed during the spring is now only cultivated in the Orkney Islands. The words powerful and rustic come to mind when describing this Arran whisky. Complex, nuanced and medicinal could also be employed.

Limited edition of 4,858 bottles. Profile: powerful, round. Mentholated, malted, medicinal and aniseed notes. Spices (cumin, pepper), fresh fruit (lemon) and aquatic notes (water lily, samphire).

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : bright yellow.
  • Nose : intense, lively. The initial nose is mentholated, highly malted and aniseed-scented. Develops into notes of cumin and damp earth. Malted barley takes over the entire aromatic palate. Rustic, powerful and herbaceous. Medicinal after aeration, it also soothes mouth injuries.
  • Palate : both lively and round. Lively acidity. Evokes freshly cut lemon. Lemon zest gives a slight mouth-watering sharpness to the mouth-feel and, at the same time, bags of grain. The mid-palate is peppery and mentholated. Aquatic: water lilies, watercress and samphire are washed in on the tide.
  • Overall : long, intense. The green mint makes way for white mint and coconut milk. The acidic and milky combination is heavenly. Barley then comes back with a vengeance filling the end of the palate with malty flavours. The retro-olfaction is fruity (melon, pistachio) and the empty glass has the same powerful expression as the initial nose.
The brand

The brand

The Isle of Arran has come a long way and their 10 year old whisky, bottled for some years now, has raised the distillery to the ranks of the great whisky producers. The particularity of Arran whisky is in its finishes, carried out in a wide variety of casks that previously contained wine (from Champagne, Margaux or Marsala) or even brandy (Cognac, calvados). The distillery is also known for producing whisky with various forgotten types of barley, as well as a series of vintage single casks, often bottled at cask strength. Produced on an island near the Scottish mainland, its style is more like Highland malt. Find out more
