To achieve this rich partnership, the traditional Arran Single Malt is matured in oak casks for eight years and is then ‘finished’ in a selection of Sauternes wine casks. The Bordeaux sweet white wine casks are specifically selected by the Master Distiller from a talented small producer to ensure the notes from both wine and whisky make the perfect marriage. If you’re looking for something that shows off the sweeter side of Arran Single Malt this is a perfect choice. It pairs beautifully with creamy toffee or fudge based desserts. 50% ABV
Nose: Honey sweetness and citrus
Palate: Richly honeyed and backed with a lifting zestiness which slides into spice and zingy salt. Once the dram opens out, vanilla and sultana stand out followed by notes of toasted oak.
Finish: Sweetness, honey, apricots, melon, honeysuckle
