Arran Barrel Reserve Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Isle of Arran, SCOTLAND
$79. 99 Bottle
$959.88 Dozen
ABV: 43%
Tasting note: As of late 2019, all the Arrans sport new packaging, designed by London agency Stranger & Stranger. The label now features iconography in the shape of Arran Island, with a pair of native eagles enclosed by 'ripples' reflecting the island’s mountain waterfalls. This entry level expression shows off Arran's house style; Soft aromas of vanilla and pineapple pudding follow with delectable pear strudel and vanilla malt flavours before finishing creamy, with a touch of coastal tang. There's decent weight and mouthfeel at 43%, while the overall balance remains spot on. A profile reminiscent of older Glenfiddichs, and very easy to like. 43% Alc./Vol.
