    Arran 12 yo James MacTaggart Master of Distilling Series “The Man with the Golden Glass”

    SPECIAL RELEASE OF 12 YEAR-OLD ARRAN MALT

    In 2019, Master Distiller James MacTaggart celebrates his 12th anniversary at the Isle of Arran Distillery.
    This elegant and luxurious expression of the Arran Malt has been skilfully designed by him using some of the finest Palo Cortado Sherry Casks. These unique casks, give a warm and rich note that beautifully compliments the natural fruitiness of the Arran Malt.

    TASTING NOTES

    Nose : Bright and mouth-watering; Seville orange marmalade, peaches and mango freshness are followed by the warmth of root ginger and a waft of drying grass and gorse bushes.

    Palate : Rich in chocolate orange, quince jelly and the zest of citrus fruits. The subtle tang of yeasty, buttered sourdough and a kick of rock salt come through as the Palo Cortado cask displays its influence.

    Finish : Cider apples accentuate Arran house style before the warmth of ginger returns alongside a rich impression of these exceptional sherry casks.

    Tasting notes courtesy of James MacTaggart, Master Distiller.

    Arran 1995 Bourbon Private Cask 70cl

    Very Limited Edition Arran Single Cask Bottling Distilled in 1995 which is the year the Arran Distillery opened! One of 172 bottles!

    Distilled on 14/11/95

    Cask number 199

    Barrel : Bourbon

    Tasting Notes

    Nose: Apple Danish pastries in a dunnage warehouse. A green herbaceous note reminiscent of fresh basil flows into the dusty, musty smell that comes only from whisky of advancing years. Nose develops to assertive tropical characters. Pineapple, guava et al. under the layer of fruit there is a zesty, classic arran DNA manifesting as lemon balm. An impression of beeswax suggests a full palate to come.

    Palate: as the nose predicts, round, mouth coating and oily. The character develops into a floral hedgerow of flavour- springtime. There’s a hint of vanilla fudge giving this a chewy feeling. The tang of Arran citrus qualities remains alongside a crack of white pepper – this is still lively for being so mature, no “flatness” at all.

    Finish: fragrant cedarwood sawdust and a move towards the wood influence. Flavours drift back towards red apple as the palate starts to dry slowly. The flavour lasts a LONG time. An extremely classy dram and, as is normal for arran it is showing bags of maturity. Distillery and “aged spirit” flavours are the stars of the show here. The cask is not dominating, only complimenting. Lovely, lovely whisky and a proper example of what we have come to recognise as how ‘Arran in advancing years’ should be.
