Our first 21 Year Arran Cask is here, the second oldest Arran ever bottled! 

One of a pair of new KWM Arran single casks, it was selected by and bottled exclusively for the shop. Distilled June 17 1996 and bottles 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 the oldest Arran 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?!
