First batch of full strength Arran 12 year old single malt. Matured in first and second fill sherry hogsheads bottled September 2011.
Aroma: Full-bodied aroma of dark chocolate, toasted oak and baked apples
Palate: A warming sherry blanket at first but time and a splash of water reveal more subtle nuances of citrus fruits and cinnamon.
Finish: Powerful and spicy but still retains the finesse of classic Arran expressions.
Arran Single Malt Whisky
Arran Distillery was commissioned by the Isle of Arran Distillers in 1995 and lies amid stunning scenery just to the south of Lochranza on the northern tip of the Isle of Arran. This distillery has four stills, dunnage warehouses, a visitor centre offering distillery tours and a distillery café. Arran distills both un-peated and peated malt spirit and matures its whisky in sherry, bourbon, port and wine casks in order to produce an ever-evolving and expanding range of whiskies including Arran single malts such as Arran Machrie Moor and The Illicit Stills, and Arran blended scotch.
