Arran 14 year old , released in 2010, was finished in fresh bourbon and sherry hogsheads 2 years before it was bottled. The result is a sweet, fruity whisky with all that wonderful malt we love!
Distillers Tasting Notes
Colour: Sunset Copper
Nose: Dried fruits, vanilla and toffee up front. With a little water a salty tang appears, with caramelised fruits inidicating a depth of flavour.
Palate: An initial burst of brine leads onto warming toffee appleas and hazlenuts. This is followed by dates, chocolate orange and spiced tea cake. The mouthfeel is overwhelmingly rich and weighty.
Finish: a A trademark Arran finish with cinnamon spices leading back to where the experience began, with a classic island-style salty wave balancing the sweet-fruit of the palate.
