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 Madeira wine casks sourced from an artisan producer of this fortified wine from the island of Madeira some 800km south-west of Portugal. Master Distiller, James MacTaggart, has carefully monitored this period of secondary maturation to ensure the perfect balance is struck between the Madeira 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.
On the nose rich fruitcake, marmalade on toast with a hint of chocolate, the palate is a wash with raisin sweetness, Bitter orange, Honey & more Fruitcake, another cask finish masterpiece from Arran.
