The Arran Malt finished in Sauternes casks. These casks that previously held Bordeaux sweet wine give a honeyed sweetness to the isle of Arran’s only single malt distillery.
Nose:Initially acacia honey but then opening up to apricots, bananas and pears. With time a floral elegance presents itself.
Palate:Sweet but cut with warm spice. Lemon zest announces itself with the addition of water and a slight saltiness plays with this dram's sweet character.
Finish:Seville orange, Sauternes and an ounce of honey in a crisp finish.
Overall:Yet another successful cask-finish from this island distillery.
