Matured for 23 years in a Sherry Puncheon and bottled at 49.5% abv. Limited to 9,000 bottles worldwide.
NOSE: A burst of sweet apple with underlying maltiness – a classic expression of well aged Arran. The sweet notes linger and are enriched by baked pastry and a dusting of icing sugar (think Apple Strudel). Rich and nutty in the background, bringing to life the influence of the casks used.
PALATE: An initial wave of sweetness followed by spice; Spiced apple, cocoa powder and star anise. Flavours of dark chocolate and raisins also start to develop, creating a beautiful balance between Arran’s signature style and sherry cask maturation.
FINISH: A long and warming finish, reflecting the sweetness and spice found on nose and palate. A dram that will leave you wanting to pour another.
