"... the spirit itself is nothing short of brilliant."
- Jim Murray's Whisky Bible.

Note: Batches may vary without notice.

"Machrie Moor" is a reference to an area of Arran island strewn with Bronze Age stone circles and standing stones, once used by a giant to tether its favourite dog to (hence the label). This is moderately peated at 20ppm, and started out as a regular 'limited release' of around 18,000 bottles but was so popular, the distillery decided to make it a part of the core range.

Tasting note: [Eighth edition] Aromatically, a judicious balance of Arran's seamless, fruity malt with the peat applied in soft brush strokes. Peat wise, it's more Highland than Island, the middle stage sweetness followed by a surge of pepper and sooty smoke before turning minty fresh. Spot-on balance, and packs a decent punch at 46% ABV with much more smoke than the nose suggests. A compelling alternative to entry level Islay. Non chill filtered. 46% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... [5th Edition] A few tired old Bourbon barrels have taken the score down slightly on last year. But the spirit itself is nothing short of brilliant.

Second Edition tasted... Pale straw gold. Opens muted, gradually releasing notes of choc-chip cookie, Fisherman’s friend and dried kelp after several minutes exposure. Unusual palate - think quality Japanese green tea with some sweet spices thrown in... The peaty malt adds depth towards the finish. Weird but wonderful to try Arran in this guise. 46% Alc/Vol. 90 points
