The Arran distillery has really embraced the art of cask finishing, as this 2018 limited edition bottling demonstrates. This single malt Scotch spent the last months of its maturation in Marsala Sicilian wine casks!
Nose: Mandarin peel, glazed apples and roasted almonds emerge through a core of strong oak, spicy honey and a hint of gingerbread.
Palate: Very dry spice from cloves and nutmeg fizzes through chocolate-y hazelnut, bitter orange and grapefruit and a touch of toasted oak.
Finish: White pepper crackles through dark notes of cherries and blackberries.
