What they say:

The Arran Malt 13 Years old 2001

Distilled 28.05.2001 and bottled 06.01.2014 at 54,7%, from a single sherry hogshead#2001/098

This limited edition single malt was chosen from a selection of five fabulous casks by the members of Glasgow’s Whisky Club on the 14th of October 2014.

What I say:

Another Independently bottled Arran, this time selected from a cask shortlist at one of the Glasgow Whisky Club tastings to become their own exclusive bottling. The popular choice was this ex-sherried 13 year old.


Copper amber gold (12/20) quixk medium-sized tears leave medium-fine legs


Richly spiced and marinated, white pepper, fruity/figgy. red fruits, heather honey, a hint of chocolate, plum, cereal malt, mixed fruit cordial ‘Vimto’, a little less herbal than the Green Welly Stop Arran (tasted alongside), toffee, fudge, waxy, cinnamon spiced cocoa/hot chocolate.


Sweet, spicy and warming, plum, Ribena (blackcurrant cordial), cinnamon-spiced cocoa, fruity and a little tart apple, icing sugar, tinned pineapple both in its own syrup and pineapple fritters, apple Danish pastries


Long, spiced, sweet, fruity but with a touch of salt caramel and something savoury


Very nice, a little bit sweeter and slightly less complex than Green Welly Stop Arran

Score: 85/100

Don’t take my word for it:
