The third edition of the Icons of Arran range is the Westie. Ruaraidh (pronounced Roo-ree) the West Highland Terrier belonging to their Distillery Manager James MacTaggart. Ruaraidh is independent of character with a mischievous glint in his eye and is much admired by visitors to the Distillery in Lochranza. This limited edition bottling was drawn from 22 ex-Sherry Hogsheads distilled in 1998 and specially selected by James MacTaggart under the careful supervision of Ruaraidh. After 12 years of maturation this expression of Arran is rich & warming with a delightful complexity.
