One of our most popular Cask Finishes, The first edition of Arran Malt Finished in an Amarone Wine Cask received top marks from Jim Murray in his 2010 Whisky Bible - 96 out of 100 with the comments 'perhaps the best Arran nose of all time'. After initially maturing in traditional oak casks over a number of years The Arran Single Malt in this bottling was finished in a selection of Amarone wine casks sourced from an artisan producer of this iconic Italian red wine. Our Master Distiller, James MacTaggart, has carefully monitored this period of secondary maturation to ensure the perfect balance is struck between the Amarone casks and the intrinsic sweet-fruity character of The Arran Malt. The end result is a Single Malt full of charm, complexity and quality.
Colour: Burnished Copper
Nose: Poached pears and honey followed by toasted almonds and a subtle touch of cranberry. With water a coffee note appears together with chocolate orange and mellow butterscotch.
Palate: Dark chocolate, cherry and Turkish delights are evident as are stewed fruits and toffee. Muscular notes of dark plum wrestle with bitter-sweet apricots and a hint of cinnamon.
Finish: A well-balanced combination of the finesse of The Arran Malt and the restrained fruit and oak from the Amarone casks. Concentrated and elegant this malt delivers on all levels.
Deep Bronze. Vanilla spice and ripe citrus running into dried fruits and nuttiness.
With a splash of water more depth of mandarin citrus with fudge and honeyed notes. Layered fruits and spice combine, with cinnamon baked apple wrestling with raisin and plum pudding.
The dram opens out to reveal warming barley and a hint of sweet pear. A classic Single Malt with punch that dances on the palate. The trademark Arran barley-sweetness shines through the layers of complexity.
