Est. 1995, Arran is one of the most remote distilleries in Scotland, but is it located on an island: Arran. This means of travel to and fro from the island is by either by boat or light aircraft. Their closest neighbours are the Springbank and Glen Scotia distilleries, located on the Campbeltown peninsula. The ‘Arranians” who work at the distillery consider the term ‘Single Island Malt’ clearly defines the singularly unique style of this lovingly produced liquid.It’s deeply polished gold hews immediately draws in the eye creating a desire to dive the nose right into the glass. An instant aroma of baked peaches, honey, toasted almonds, rich sherry cask charring and subtle spice. A sip releases a wonderfully waxy coating of the mouth filling it with a warmth of crystallised ginger, crème brûlèe, caramelised brown sugar. A dash of water reveals floral notes, macadamia nuts and Seville orange marmalade. A fine finish of hazelnuts and nougat mingles with homemade toffee apples.
A fully matured and memorable malt indeed!
