Arran 21st Anniversary Limited Edition

For at markerer Arrans 21 år jubilæum, har de aftappet denne single malt. Der er taget forskellige fade fra deres første 3 års produktion og er kun fra ex-Sherry Hogsheads. Den er aftappet ved fadstyrke på 52.6% alc. og det er der kommet 5988 flasker ud af.

Prisen for en flaske vil ligge på omkring £150.

Master Distiller James MacTaggart udtaler: "To create this extra special edition of The Arran Malt, I have chosen a selection of our oldest ex-oloroso Sherry Hogsheads from the first three years of production at the Isle of Arran Distillery. Over the years, the fresh notes of citrus and malt in our delicate new spirit have integrated beautifully with the ex-oloroso cask. The nose is rich and fruity, and on the palate luxurious notes of dark chocolate, sweet ginger spice and honey lead to a long and satisfying finish. It has been a pleasure to nurture the maturation of this precious spirit and see it become the most fitting dram with which toast our 21st Anniversary. Slainte!”
