One of a pair of new KWM Arran single casks, it was selected by and bottled exclusively for the shop. Distilled June 17th, 1996 and bottled on April 9 2018 at 55.3% after maturing in a Sherry Hogshead. Our first 21 year old single cask of Arran, this would be one of the oldest Arrans ever to come to Canada, save for the other cask we brought in which is 22 years of age!
Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: honeyed, fruity and floral; some candied citrus and soft Manuka honey; classic Arran so far; a touch of leather and building crisp decadent spices; faint musty oak, Demerara sugars and vanilla icing.
Palate: round, fruity, creamy and warming; the spirit has a wonderful mouthfeel; loads of honey, vanilla and caramel make way for crisp and candied citrus fruits; a touch of musty oak and smooth elegant leather before a touch of tobacco; crisp spices: real ginger, cardamom and hot cinnamon.
Finish: long, warm and spicy; still decadent and citrusy with loads of spice and coating creamy vanilla core.
Comment: this is an elegant Arran, hitting its stride at 21 years of age; where has the time gone?!
