Nose: Spicy dark fruits, cherry and parma violets.
Palate: Chocolate, fig and plums are underwritten by smoked oak, balanced well by the light citrus nature of the Arran Malt.
Finish: The Côte-Rôtie expression is smooth and rich, leaving memory of candied fruit and smoked pepper. A beautifully complex dram which highlights an ideal paring between the Côte-Rôtie cask and the Arran Malt.
After initially maturing in traditional oak casks the Arran Single Malt in this bottling was specifically selected by our master distiller to be ‘finished’ in Côte-Rôtie Wine Casks sourced from a quality producer of this red wine from the Rhone Valley. This whisky is bottled without artificial colouring or chill filtration to ensure a natural full-bodied and flavoursome single malt.
