All about making whisky
Aged initially in first-fill bourbon casks, before being finished for at least 18 months in a quarter cask (small cask), this new opus from the Arran distillery has made the most of its optimal contact with the oak to remove the woodiness from its aromatic palette. This allows, now more than ever, the malty, herbaceous, fruity style so characteristic of this single malt - which will celebrate its 20th anniversary at the end of this year - to be fully expressed. The saline notes that also reveal its island character are particularly interesting.
Batch #1 - Quarter Cask Limited edition of 420 bottles Profile: exotic fruit (banana, pineapple), citrus fruit (grapefruit, orange, tangerine) and sweet spices (cardamom, cinnamon). Malty, bitter and liquoricey.

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
