Product Description

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 iconic Italian red wine. Arran Master Blender, 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 Arran Single Malt. The end result is a Single Malt full of charm, complexity and quality.

Official Tasting Notes

Colour - Deep copper.

Aroma - Poached pears and honey followed by toasted almonds and a subtle touch of cranberry. With water a coffee note appears together with chocolate orange and mellow butterscotch.

Palate - Dark chocolate, cherry and Turkish delights are evident as are stewed fruits andtoffee. Rich notes of dark plum gently mellow together with bitter-sweet apricot and a hint of cinnamon.

Finish - A well-balanced combination of the finesse of Arran Single Malt and the restrained fruit and oak from the Amarone casks. Concentrated and elegant this malt delivers on all levels.
