Volume 2 of Arran Distilleries Explorers Series is now in stock! A limited edition one-off bottling that has been matured in sherry hogsheads and finished in amontillado sherry casks over the course of 21 years.
NOSE: Rich, layered and complex. Caramelised almonds and chocolate covered crystallised ginger dovetail with deep aromas of dried apricots and caramelised brown sugar. Dusty smells of the dunnage warehouse abound.
PALATE: Bright and mouth coating, showing notes of honeycomb and salted caramel. Herbaceous accents offset the orchard fruit which comes to the fore to display the ever-present Arran house style. Seamless integration of age, wood characters and Arran spirit.
FINISH: Enigmatic, developing toward Assam tea and subtle cigar smoke. A resurgence of freshness completes the circle. A fabulous example of Arran in more advanced years.
