Arran James MacTaggart 2007 10 YO 54.2% (OB)


Light, fruity, honey, oak and salty in the end

Nice scale: 85/100

Distilled in 2007 and aged in 100% first-fill bourbon barrels for 10 years and bottled to celebrate the 10th year mark of Arran distillery. A release of 12,000 bottles bottled at 54.2% ABV cask strength.

Arran James MacTaggart 2007 10 YO 54.2%

Nose: Coconut, honey, apple and vanilla. Light on the nose.

Mouth: Sweet fruitiness, creamy and then oak spice. Honey and malt are part of the expression. The liquid is relatively light.

Finish: Salty and oak spice with a light sweetness.

Like Arran's The Bodega Quarter Cask, also since both are bourbon cask strength. I felt the fruitiness might be a bit weaker compared to that-like the pineapple feeling is stronger over there. But the extra saltiness at the end gives me some pleasant surprise. Overall not bad for a 10-year-old bottling.

Nice scale: 85/100
