ABV: 50%
A new expression from Arran that was released in 2010. After initially maturing in xBourbon casks, this was ‘finished’ in a selection of Port wine casks sourced from an artisan and iconic Portuguese producer. Typically ruby port barrels are preferred over vintage port casks, the former adding bright fruity notes. Bottling at 50% makes for additional body and complexity.

Tasting note: Offers all the pure barley goodness associated with this distillery and with minimal spirit flare, the port adding further interest with suggestions of berry tart and dried cranberry on the nose. Full bodied and beautifully poised with juicy malt dovetailing into a zesty, nutty end. One of our favourite port finishes to date. 50% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
