Review door Arran

« Deze review is alleen beschikbaar in het Engels »
Geur

A fresh aroma with notes of toasted oak, treacle-toffee & orange zest.

Smaak

Full-bodied and buttery with an initial rush of vanilla essence and Demerara sugar. The sweet character subsides leaving cocoa powder and cardamom seeds.

Afdronk

Malty & smooth with voluptuous spice.

Notitie

Please meet Ruaraidh (pronounced Roo-ree) the West Highland Terrier belonging to our Distillery Manager James MacTaggart. Ruaraidh is independent of character with a mischievous glint in his eye and is much admired by visitors to our Distillery in Lochranza. This limited edition bottling was drawn from 22 ex-Sherry Hogsheads distilled in 1998 and specially selected by James MacTaggart under the careful supervision of Ruaraidh. After 12 years of maturation this expression of Arran is rich & warming with a delightful complexity.
