700ML / 50.0% ABV.
Matured for around 8 years in traditional oak casks, this Arran Single Malt is then finished in a selection of Sauternes wine casks, an iconic Bordeaux sweet white wine.
Nose: Honeysuckle, melon and marzipan with a spicy edge to add balance. Add water and a lush fruit attack appears with banana, forest flowers and a rich nutty character.
Palate: Richly honeyed and backed with a lifting zestiness which slides into spice and zingy salt. Once the dram opens out, vanilla and sultana stand out followed by notes of toasted oak.
Finish: A glorious combination of voluptuous Sauternes and snake-hipped Arran Malt - a richly rewarding partnership.
