Arran Lochranza Castle Explorers Series Vol.2
Matured in Sherry Hogshead and finished Amontillado Sherry Casks.
NOSE: Rich, layered and complex.Caramelised almonds and chocolate covered crystallised ginger dovetail with deep aromas of dried apricots and caramelised brown sugar. Dusty smells of the dunnage warehouse abound.
PALATE: Bright and mouth coating, showing notes of honeycomb and salted caramel. Herbaceous accents offset the orchard fruit which comes to the fore to display the ever-present Arran house style. Seamless integration of age, wood characters and Arran spirit.
FINISH: Enigmatic, developing toward Assam tea and subtle cigar smoke. A resurgence of freshness completes the circle. A fabulous example of Arran in more advanced years.
James MacTaggart, Master Distiller
The Arran distillery was opened in 1995 at Lochranza on the Isle of Arran. The island floats on the Firth of Clyde off the west coast between the Kintyre peninsula and Ayrshire.
