Arran Sauternes Cask Finish

The Arran distillery selected the best casks for the new Cask Finish Range. Amarone Finish, Port Finish and Sauternes Finish are now part of the soo called core-range. This Arran Single Malt was matured in ex-Bourbon casks and finished in a Sauternes Sweet Wine cask. In there the Whisky gained a golden colour and a wonderful sweet taste.

Nosing: Apfel Birne Ananas Süße
Heavily fruit lead. Apples, pears and pineapple with other mixed tropical fruit.

Taste: Früchte Tropische Früchte Malz
Sweet, intense arrival. Apricot jam, creamy and malty. More of those tropical notes.

Finish: Tropische Früchte Eiche
Medium length, residual fruit. Drying over time. Good quality oak comes forward.


Comment:
This is a gem in the Arran range. Their spirit takes to different cask finishes very well, but this is a stand out example as far as I'm concerned, definitely worth looking out for.
