Arran 18 Years single malt whisky 46%
The Arran Malt 18 Years Old is a wonderfully well-balanced single malt. It is a "sherry bomb" that has a nice depth in the taste and shows all the many nuances that the distillery character from the small distillery offers. Caramelized citrus and notes of tropical fruits with a background of roasted oak together give an intense and well-rounded dram with charm and personality.
The whiskey is a combination of 1st fill and 2nd fill hogsheads as well as bourbon barrels, which has been finished on 1st fill Oloroso sherry barrels. After more than 150 years of absence, the legal distillation returned to the island of Arran in 1995, when the Isle of Arran Distillers distilled the first drops at the Lochranza distillery at. 14.29 on June 29, 1995. The last legal distillery on Arran closed in 1836. It was located south of the island of Lagg.
The unusually beautiful Lochranza Distillery is located in the village of the same name on the northwestern tip of Arran. The whiskey from the distillery matures on the distillery's own grounds in some completely unique surroundings. The whiskey is stored mainly in sherry and bourbon casks. can be described as a contrast to the distillery in Lochranza. The whiskey from LAGG becomes smoky, harsh and a total contrast to the soft and very elegant whiskey, which is produced in the north. We still have to wait a few years before the drops from LAGG turn into real whiskey.
