MACHRIE MOOR 8th Release Of 46%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands-arran, 70cl, Ref: 53669
Bottled at 46% ABV, this 8th edition has been exclusively aged in refilled bourbon casks. Peated to 20 PPM, this edition translates perfectly the savage beauty of Arran landscapes and the legend of Machrie Moor.
"Machrie Moor" is a peat field located on the west side of the isle of Arran. This is where the famous giant Fingal used to tie his favorite dog, Bran. This peated version of the Arran Single Malt named Machrie Moor is the tribute to this legend.

- The brand
Every year since 2004, a limited quantity of Arran Malt has been produced using a peated malted barley. Since 2010, this peated single malt has been available in a limited edition under the name Machrie Moor - the name of the peatlands on the west coast of Arran. The barley is malted at 14ppm phenols, enveloping the unique character of Arran in a thick cloud of peaty smoke. This results in a superbly balanced whisky with an initial taste of sweet fruits, followed by a peaty finish which warms and comforts like the hot ashes of a bonfire.
