Arran 14YO 700ml
Colour: Sunset Copper
Nose: Dried fruits, vanilla and toffee up front. With a little water a salty tang appears, with caramelised fruits indicating a depth of flavour to come.
Palate: An initial burst of brine leads onto warming toffee apples and hazelnuts. This is followed by dates, chocolate orange and spiced tea cake. The mouthfeel is overwhelmingly rich and weighty.
Finish: A trademark Arran finish with cinnamon spices leading back to where the experience began, with a classic island-style salty wave balancing the sweet fruit of the palate.
Awards: Winner in 2011 of the Best Island (Non-Islay) Single Malt 13 - 20 Years at the World Whisky Awards. Winner of a Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2012. Winner of a Silver Medal at the China Wine & Spirits Best Value Awards 2014."
