Product details

The Arran Distillery is found on the Isle of Arran, an island off the west coast of Scotland. Founded back in 1993, the distillery is known for its many cask-finished whiskies, and while many have come and gone this Port Cask Finish (first released in 2010) has stuck around – and for good reason!

While this is a no-age-statement single malt, we do know that it initially spent around eight years in American oak, before it was moved to ex-Port casks for its finishing period. The creaminess of the initial maturation and bundles of jammy fruit from the finish both complement the savoury nature of the Island whisky itself, all presented at a generous 50% ABV.
