The whisky has been matured in ex-Sherry and Bourbon Casks and is bottled at 46% Vol without chill filtration or the addition of any colouring. Here’s a breakdown of the life span of the 1995 casks we selected for this very first batch:
Original 1995 Stock
All stock re-casked into 1st Fill and Refill Sherry Hogsheads for 12 months prior to bottling.
As one of the first of the new wave of distilleries to reach maturity, this is a proud moment for us to be able to share this landmark Single Malt with you all at the end of what has been a tremendously challenging year for everyone. We are still on a very exciting journey that started a quarter of a century ago. We hope that you will join us in sharing a dram of your favourite Arran Single Malt over these winter months to toast the continued success of our island story.
Here’s to 25 years of making great Arran Single Malt!
Arran 25yo Tasting Notes
Nose – Rich oak with a gentle nutmeg note. Sweeter aromas of baked ripe figs, sultanas and black cherries.
Palate – Fruit cake with toasted almonds and cinnamon. The juicy zestiness of oranges and mandarins mellows perfectly with manuka honey, muscovado sugar, baked apricots and an interesting white pepper note that provides even more complexity.
Finish – Creamy and spicy with dark chocolate, walnuts and dark fruits compote.
