SCOTLAND-ISLE / 0.70 liter, 51.8%
Arran Master of Distilling 12 Years Old Limited Edition
This characterful limited edition of the Arran Single Malt has been specially created by Master Distiller James MacTaggart as a stunning example of a successful partnership between whisky and cask.
A selection of Palo Cortado Sherry Casks handpicked in Spain by James add a delightful and warming dimension to another memorable and classic expression of Arran Single Malt.
There are 12,000 bottles of this edition available worldwide.
NOSE: Bright and mouth-watering; Seville orange marmalade, peaches and mango freshness are followed by the warmth of root ginger and a waft of drying grass and gorse bushes.
PALATE: Rich in chocolate orange, quince jelly and the zest of citrus fruits. The subtle tang of yeasty, buttered sourdough and a kick of rock salt come through as the Palo Cortado cask displays its influence.
FINISH: Cider apples accentuate Arran house style before the warmth of ginger returns alongside a rich impression of these exceptional sherry casks.
