ARRAN LOCHRANZA RESERVE ~ ISLANDS, SCOTLAND
81/100 - The Whisky Base
Silver Outstanding: Scotch Single Malt Island 2018 - International Wine & Spirit Competition
A citrusy, light and elegant no-age-statement single malt Scotch whisky from the distillery on the Isle of Arran. The Lochranza Reserve replaced the Arran Original in mid-2014. The name comes from the village on the Isle of Arran where the distillery is located.
Jan van den Ende "The Arran Lochranza is a light, Fruity and Floral Whisky, especially on the Nose."
Nose - Fresh green apples, lemon peels and a hint of milk chocolate. A touch of golden barley and sea breeze too.
Palate - The salty sea air notes grow slightly on the palate, balanced with plenty of juicy citrus and sweet toffee pennies. Hints of oak spice.
Finish - Relaxed and creamy on the finish.
