In February 2015, Isle of Arran Distillers celebrated its 21st Birthday by adding this 18 year old single malt to its core range of whiskies. Produced from un-peated malted barley, aged in ex-sherry hogsheads and bottled without chill-filtration or caramel colouring.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 12/03/2016

Appearance

Clear, mid-golden amber. Faint haze with water.

Aroma

Slightly burnt toast, pencil shavings, chocolate and nutmeg with mocha coffee, pear tart and cinnamon. Lemon zest emerges with water.

Taste

Rich and full-bodied with an almost creamy mouthfeel. Toasty malt, brioche, dark chocolate with zesty citrus, baked pear and black pepper spice. Takes water well, revealing delicate lavender and orange fondant creams.

Aftertaste

Long, toasty finish with lingering chocolaty spice and creamy fudge.

Overall

Well-balanced, full-bodied and generous with toasty malt and dry spicy oak balanced by a sweet creaminess with notes of dark chocolate, brioche, pear tart. With a splash of water delicate lavender and orange fondant creams are revealed.
