Double Gold Medal San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2013.
For Batch #3 of The Arran Malt 12 Years Old Cask Strength Lochranza’s Master Distiller James MacTaggart has selected a combination of 5 First-Fill Sherry Butts, 13 Second-Fill Sherry Hogsheads and 31 Bourbon barrels which have been bottled at Natural Cask Strength. The influence of the Sherry Casks has enhanced the classic Arran characteristics of sweet fruit and spicy oak and the Bourbon casks give the vanilla smoothness to create a rich and powerful new edition of The Arran Malt.
Official Tasting Notes
Colour: Antique Gold with copper highlights.
Nose: Rich warm spices with notes of candied citrus peel, tinned mandarins and golden syrup. The classic Arran orchard fruits of red apple are there with a luxurious layer of honey.
Palate: Plenty of sweet spice with cigar tobacco. A splash of water reveals dark chocolate and orange oil adding depth to this decadent dram.
Finish: The warmth of the spice lingers on with the classic Sherry wood character coming to the fore, and the slightest puff of bonfire smoke in the tail.
