Arrans newest bottling, a 14 years old. The use of unpeated malted barley in the production has helped created a beautifully rounded and well balanced single malt.
Colou:r Sunset Copper
Nose: Dried fruits, vanilla and toffee up front. With a little water a salty tang appears, with caramelised fruits inidicating a depth of flavour.
Palate: An initial burst of brine leads onto warming toffee appleas and hazlenuts. This is followed by dates, chocolate orange and spiced tea cake. The mouthfeel is overwhelmingly rich and weighty.
Finish: a A trademark Arran finish with cinnamon spices leading back to where the experience began, with a classic island-style salty wave balancing the sweet-fruit of the palate.
