About Arran Quarter Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky
The Arran Single Malt selected for The Quarter Cask is aged in smaller casks to intensify the maturation process and add an extra dimension of spice. Matured for 7 years in Bourbon Barrels and for a further 2 years in 125L Quarter Casks.This process produces far greater contact between the whisky & oak and a faster, more intense maturation. The end result is a full-bodied expression of The Arran Malt combining power and finesse full of rich vanilla sweetness and bold peppery spice.
Nose: Lemon peel, candy floss and a hint of cocoa.
Palate: Fresh tropical notes with pineapple, green apples and vanilla. A slight touch of chilli gives a tantalising heat
Finish: Aromatic, fruity and satisfying. The depth of sweetness is backed up by strength of the spiced oak, creating a lasting impression.
