This sweeter side of Arran! This Single Malt makes an ideal dessert dram with complementary notes of apricots, melon and honeysuckle. The Arran Sauternes Single Malt has been given a new-look for 2020.
To achieve this rich partnership, Arran Single Malt is matured in oak casks for eight years and is then 'finished' in a selection of Sauternes wine casks. These Bordeaux sweet white wine casks are specifically selected by our Master Distiller from a talented small producer to ensure the notes from both wine and whisky make the perfect marriage.
If you're looking for something that shows off the sweeter side of Arran Single Malt, this is perfect choice for you. It pairs beautifully with a creamy toffee or fudge based pudding.

Palate - Richly honeyed and backed with a lifting zestiness which slides into spice and zingy salt. Once the dram opens out, vanilla and sultana stand out followed by notes of toasted oak.
Finish - Sweetness, Honey, Apricots, Melon, Honeysuckle.
