Product Description

An independent bottling of a single cask Arran Single malt.

Distilled on the 8th August 1996 before a 16 year maturation in a first-fill sherry puncheon.

Bottlled on the 11th December 2012 and there are 583 numbered cask-strength bottles available.

Nose: Huge notes of freshly cut fruit salad and baked apple. Thick toffee, oak and soft spices appear, with dried figs. Very complex and deep - a great deal coming through from the cask.

Palate: Sticky, rich palate entry. Corinth raisins and hints of milk chocolate atop a biscuity malt core, with a touch of tangy citrus. Lovely sherry backbone - this is an unctuous, fruity malt. A sprinkling of allspice and tropical fruit develop late palate.

Finish: Long and spicy. Hints of clove oil and walnut loaf. A dusting of cocoa perhaps.
