After initially maturing in traditional oak casks over a number of years The Arran Single Malt in this bottling was ‘finished’ in a selection of Amarone wine casks sourced from an artisan producer of this stunning & iconic red wine from the Veneto region of Italy. Master Distiller, James MacTaggart, has carefully monitored this period of secondary maturation to ensure the perfect balance is struck between the Amarone casks and the intrinsic sweet-fruity character of The Arran Malt. The end result is a Single Malt with a rich brooding character, full of complexity and quality.
The nose is imidiatly filled with poached pears & a touch of cranberry and honey & then on to a palate of sweetness, Honey again, Pears, Chocolate, Turkish Delight, Cherries, Dark chocolate, a wonderful marriage of wine casks and whisky.
