Arran 18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
This expression is the culmination of Arran’s trilogy of 16, 17, and 18 year old releases, matured in sherry hogsheads. It is the oldest ‘house’ offering to date. Floral and fragrant on the nose, with soft fruits and marzipan. Balanced and rounded. Viscous and full-bodied on the palate, with fruit spices, vanilla, sweet sherry, orange marmalade, and finally raisins. Slowly drying to spicy plain chocolate and licorice. (Summer 2015)
From the distillery: this Limited Edition release of The Arran Malt at 18 Years Old has been produced from un-peated malted barley and matured in a selection of the finest ex-Sherry casks. The whisky has not been artificially coloured and has not been chill-filtered at bottling thus retaining the full range of aromas and flavours which typify this unique Island Single Malt. It has been bottled at 46% abv. Only 9,000 bottles of The Arran Malt 18 Years Old have been released worldwide. This is the final bottling in a trilogy of 16, 17 & 18 year-old Arran Malts which celebrated the countdown to this first official release of The Arran Malt as an 18 year-old.
