Review door Arran

« Deze review is alleen beschikbaar in het Engels »
Geur

Dark and brooding in colour, the Sleeping Warrior is rich and robust on the nose with aromas of liquorice, leather and boiled sweets.

Smaak

Dark cherries and stewed fruits dominate the palate whilst a softer sweeter side emerges with water leading to lemon sherbet and toffee-apples.

Afdronk

With an enduring, spicy and complex conclusion this is indeed a true mountain of a malt.

Notitie

The stunning profile of the summits and ridges on the north-end of the Isle of Arran is referred to as the Sleeping Warrior due to its resemblance to a resting human figure. These mountains attract thousands of visitors each year which leads to the erosion of the landscape. A donation from every bottle sold of the Sleeping Warrior will be made to the National Trust for Scotland to help maintain the footpaths on Goatfell, Arran’s highest peak, for the enjoyment of all. This limited edition of The Arran Malt from our 2000 vintage is bottled at natural cask strength from a combination of our finest ex-European and American oak casks selected by Master Distiller James MacTaggart.
