Product Description

Released in October 2016, The High Seas is part of the Smugglers’ Series Volume 2, a tribute to the distillers who outwitted government representatives while conjuring the famous Arran Waters. It’s as full of character as the figures who inspired it.

Matured in a combination of rum casks and first-fill bourbon barrels - 8,700 bottles were produced.

Official Tasting Notes:

Nose - Citrus fruits are at the fore, mingling with smells evocative of the outdoors; a touch of seaweed hints at coastal character. Orchard fruits, white pepper, and a subtle dry note reminiscent of fino sherry make this a complex nose. A hint of burned pine wood is in the background.

Palate - A fizzing mouthfeel with sherbet character. A fresh spearmint note appears and mingles with warm bramley apple pie and ice cream. There is tangy lime marmalade with chilli pepper heat and a whiff of smoke from a just-lit fire of pine logs. The addition of water shows honey dew melon and pear drop sweets.

Finish - Distillery character shines through; notes of apples, citrus and good body are elongated by a backbone of subtle smoke.
