Arran Distillery has just released a nw single malt call ‘Machrie Moor’ . This is the first release limited to 9000 bottles worldwide. Distilled since 2004 the malted barely is peated to a levele of 14ppm and botytled at their prefered strenght of 46% vol.
The nose gives hints of fudge, coconut spice and a glorious touch of peat reek to follow.
The palate is classic Arran at first with notes of citrus, orchard fruits and cardamom spice mingling in a rich melting pot. At the back of the palate peat smoke finally emerges to whip up a storm.
The peat reek takes center stage leaving a rich, warming glow like the burning embers of a bonfire.
