Exclusive to The Whisky Shop London, this Arran 1996 single cask is one of the oldest expressions ever released by the distillery. Long-aged Arran casks are hard to find, as the distillery only began operating the year before in 1995. This expression spent 24 years lying in rest in a sherry cask. It is free from chill filtration and has a natural deep amber colour. Bottled at 47.8% abv, there are only 231 bottles available which are strictly limited to one per customer.
A rich, and juicy nose, it has flavours of macerated dried fruits, red cherries, dark chocolate, and this sweetness is paired with a savoury herbal character. The finish is warm and luxurious, both sweet and savoury, and with a lingering note of chocolate orange. This is a premium single malt that exemplifies the innovative spirit of the Arran distillery, and one we feel privileged to offer.
