Arran revived the island's dying tradition of crafting fine whisky when they built a new distillery in Lochranza, at the north end of the island. When a three year old cask was opened in 1998, those lucky enough to be present enjoyed the first legal dram of Arran whisky in over 160 years.
The initial rush of rich vanilla sweetness gives way to a touch of cinnamon which adds a spicy edge to the soft and sweet texture. The classic Arran citrus notes have rounded with age and reveal new depths of character against a background of sweet oak.
Presented in a rather elegant and handsome bottle and comes in a cylindrical gift box.
