Arran take great pride in all of their whisky, but occasionally James MacTaggart, Arran Single Malt’s Distillery Manager, discovers a cask that truly stands out as the finest example of the Distillers art and oak cask in perfect harmony. The influence of the cask on the final character of whisky is widely acknowledged and one of the key aspects of his job is to determine when the right balance between the spirit and the wood has been achieved. Only the most exceptional examples of Arran’s Single Malt are approved for bottling as their Premium Cask Selection. Cask Number 78 which was distilled on July 19th 1999 and bottled on February 13th 2015.
Only 178 bottles available.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: There’s plenty of sweet oak and honey on the nose, coconut and candy floss, liquorice and butterscotch.
Palate: A malty whisky at naturally cask strength with a crisp taste. There’s a delicate nuttiness and still that signature Arran citrus and stewed fruits which lingers in the mouth.
Finish: A delicious single malt and the way I remember great whiskies to smell and taste. Lots of mouthcoating creaminess and lots of sweetness. A mellow, smooth single malt which has plenty of flavour.
