The oldest release yet from Isle of Arran Distillers and a limited release of 9,000 bottles. Next year a limited edition 17 Year Old will be launched as they count down to the release of an 18 Year Old expression!
This 16 Year Old single malt was aged in selected bourbon and sherry casks, was not chill filtered and contains no artificial colouring. Nice.
Nose: Spicy and beautifully honeyed without being too sweet.
Palate: Creamy with nutmeg, latte, caramels and reduced mandarin juice.
Finish: Lengthy and quite rich with spices from the cask.
Overall: On more step along the world Arran goes, a richer and delicious step at that!
