    ABV: 43%
    This NAS (no-age-statement) Arran replaces the "Original" and comes matured in bourbon and sherry casks, named after the village on the island where the distillery is located. Some tasters find a slight coastal quality to this and have compared it to Scapa's house style.

    Tasting note: Bright gold. Soft and delicate fruity / malty aromas with hints of kumquat. Air contact adds suggestions of lucerne bail and salted water biscuits. Supple and nicely rounded in the mouth with an easy going orchard fruit and dilute honey combo, dovetailing into feathery spices. Tangy acidity and crisp, toasty malt at the finish followed by hints of kumquat and vanilla late in the fade. Very enjoyable for all its delicacy. A dram for all occasions. Non chill-filtered. 43% Alc./Vol.
