    Tasting Notes by Arran;

    Colour: Deep Amber.Nose: The influence of the wood is immediately apparent. Sherry, dried fruits and vanilla are all evident. With a splash of water a mint-toffee character emerges with notes of hazelnut also appearing.Palate: Rich and creamy. Over the years of maturation the sweetness of the sherry has integrated beautifully and works in harmony with the intrinsic smooth, fruity character of the Arran Malt.Finish: Becomes drier on the long, lingering finish. An intriguing spiciness develops to balance the confectionary notes that dominate earlier. A classic sherry wood Arran.
