Each year, our Distillery Manager carefully selects casks which are maturing exceptionally well. These will then be stored either in sherry, bourbon, or other specialist casks until ready for bottling at natural cask strength - without chill filtering - to capture the intensity and individual character of the spirit within. In our new, stylish packaging, this product has spent all of its careful maturation in an ex-Bourbon Cask.
Nose: Sweet oak and honey are immediately apparent in the aroma. Hints of coconut and candy appear when water is added with butterscotch and liquorice also evident.
Palate: The taste is crisp and malty with a slight nuttiness. With time the malt begins to open and the Arran hallmarks of citrus and sweet fruit emerge to coat the tongue.
Finish: Clean and fresh with a lingering creamy sweetness. Best described as mellow, smooth and bursting with flavour.
