$104.95 inc GST

700 ml, 50% abv, Scotland (Island)

An extremely popular Cask Finish, The Arran Malt Finished in a Port Cask is non chillfiltered and bottled at 50% for a richly rewarding and fruity whisky. One to be savoured. After initially maturing in traditional oak casks over a number of years, The Arran Single Malt in this bottling, was finished in a selection of Port wine casks sourced from an artisan producer of this iconic Portuguese fortified wine. The Master Distiller, James MacTaggart, has carefully monitored this period of secondary maturation to ensure the perfect balance is struck between the Port casks and the intrinsic sweet-fruity character of The Arran Malt. The end result is a Single Malt full of charm, complexity and quality.
