700ml // 46.0% ABV
Distilled in 2004, this is a very interesting whisky from the Isle of Arran. Unusually for the distillery, this was distilled from peated malt, with a peating level of 14PPM. This is the third batch.
Aroma: Subtle and elusive initially. Hints of fudge, coconut & spice with a teasing touch of the glorious peat reek to follow.
Palate: Classic Arran at first with notes of citrus, orchard fruits and cardamom spice mingling in a rich melting pot. At the back of the palate peat smoke finally emerges to whip up a storm.
Finish: The peat reek takes centre stage leaving a rich, warming glow like the burning embers of a bonfire. Master Distiller James MacTaggart has skillfully combined all of the elements at work to create a harmonious blend of malt, peat and cask.
