A limited edition single malt from Arran, which after initially maturing in oak casks was specially chosen by the master distillery to be finished in Côte-Rôtie red wine casks. It was bottled without chill filtrating or colouring, with the vibrant liquid having gained its rosy hue from the casks themselves.
Nose: Oodles of oak spices, jammy dark berries and subtle floral violet aromas.
Palate: Bucketfuls of dark chocolate balanced by a dash of citrus, with lots of dried fruit alongside fresh fig and plum, with a hint of charred oak.
Finish: Delicate whispers of smoke support notes of candied fruit and a fairly spicy finish.
