Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 43%
An entry-level no-age-statement Arran single malt whisky, Arran Barrel Reserve first appeared in 2019 and is aged entirely in ex-bourbon casks and bottled at 43% in the distillery's eye-catching hefty bottles.
Arran make a great spirit: clean and well-structured, it's well suited to bourbon maturation and sufficiently characterful when bottled young to make a great aperitif whisky. A great intro to the distillery.
Nose: Delicate apples and pears.
Palate: Beautifully balanced citrus fruit and light vanilla sweetness with a burst of apple and delicate marine notes.
Finish: Sweetness, Spice, Charred Oak, Citrus, Vanilla.
