All about making whisky
In a series limited to 9,000 bottles, Arran 18 Year Old was produced using malted barley and aged exclusively in a selection of sherry casks. This version marks the last part in the trilogy that began in 2014 with a 16 year old. Adorned in gold, Arran 18 Year Old is the oldest edition of Arran single malt.
Style: Unctuous and full-bodied. Nose: Roasted peach and toasted almonds. Spice and sherry aromas. Palate: Sweet flavours of crème brulée and brown sugar. Hint of spice with ginger. Finish: Long with notes of hazelnuts, nougat and brioche.
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
