Arran Master of Distilling II - "The Man With the Golden Glass" Single Malt Whisky
A stunning 12 year-old Single Malt bottled in honour of Arran's Master Distiller James MacTaggart.
This characterful limited edition of the Arran Single Malt has been specially created by Master Distiller James MacTaggart as an exceptional example of a successful partnership between whisky and cask.
A selection of Palo Cortado Sherry Casks handpicked in Spain by James add a delightful and warming dimension to another memorable and classic expression of Arran Single Malt.
There are only a handful of cases of this edition available in Australia.
NOSE: Bright and mouth-watering; Seville orange marmalade, peaches and mango freshness are followed by the warmth of root ginger and a waft of drying grass and gorse bushes.
PALATE: Rich in chocolate orange, quince jelly and the zest of citrus fruits. The subtle tang of yeasty, buttered sourdough and a kick of rock salt come through as the Palo Cortado cask displays its influence.
FINISH: Cider apples accentuate Arran house style before the warmth of ginger returns alongside a rich impression of these exceptional sherry casks.
700ml | 51.8%abv | From the Island of Arran, Scotland.
