Limited Sherry Cask Drumadoon Point 23 Years
"The Arran Explorers Series is a collection of limited edition expressions of The Arran Single Malt. Each edition celebrates theoutstanding scenic beauty and diversity of nature on the Isle of Arran. North of the village, the main road leaves the coast for a few miles and bypasses Drumadoon Point. The scenery of the headland is breathtaking with a raised beach and dramatic cliffs formed from basalt columns.
This particular expression has been maturing for the last 23 years in ex Sherry Puncheons sourced directly from Jerez from a respected small producer who shares our values. The resulting whisky perfectly captures the impressive and dramatic scenery of this part of the island. Take your senses on an adventure around the Isle of Arran.
Nose: A burst of sweet apple with an underlying maltiness – a classic expression of well-aged Arran. The sweet notes linger and are enriched by baked pastry and a dusting of icing sugar (think Apple Strudel). Rich and nutty in the background, bringing to life the influence of the casks used. Palate: An initial wave of sweetness followed by spice; Spiced apple, cocoa powder and star anise. Flavours of dark chocolate and raisins also start to develop, creating a beautiful balance between Arran’s signature style and sherry cask maturation. Finish: A long and warming finish, reflecting the sweetness and spice found on nose and palate. A dram that will leave you wanting to pour another. Limited Edition of 9,000 bottles worldwide." – Arran
