A classic Arran whisky of cirtus, vanilla and fruits after ten years in the barrel.
Nose: Luscious citrus fruits.
Palate: The initial rush of rich vanilla sweetness gives way to a touch of cinnamon which adds a spicy edge to the soft and sweet texture. The classic Arran citrus notes have rounded with age and reveal new depths of character against a background of sweet oak.
Finish: Sweetness, apple, citrus, cinnamon.
