In 2017, Master Distiller James MacTaggart celebrates his 10th anniversary at the Isle of Arran Distillery.
This fresh and vibrant expression of The Arran Malt has been carefully created by James to mark his 10th anniversary at the Lochranza Distillery. A selection of first fill 10 year-old Bourbon Barrels from James’s first months of production in 2007 form the much- loved citrus fruit and sweet spice character of this dram. A memorable and classic expression of The Arran Malt.
Nose - freshly made cider, coconut water/fresh shavings, lemon oil and a hint of sea brine
Palate - the warmth of white pepper is immediate and then softens as boiled sweets start to show. Apple pastries, barley sugar and a complex winey note are in the mid-palate.
Finish - the finish is long and has all the freshness of a well-made whisky-sour cocktail which sweetens to candy floss as it fades slowly. A delightful expression of Arran where the true character and complexity shines through beautifully.
