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: ApplePearPineappleSweet
Heavily fruit lead. Apples, pears and pineapple with other mixed tropical fruit.

Taste: FruitTropical FruitMalt
Sweet, intense arrival. Apricot jam, creamy and malty. More of those tropical notes.

Finish: Tropical FruitOak
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.

Comment: Medium legs. Sweet, minty fresh, hints of white grapes, oakey on the nose; on the mouth it’s spicy, sweet, minty fresh, mouthwatering, spicy apples. Nice, long finish, spicy, like spiced apples in the back. A delightful whisky to be sure! This, and the Amorone Cask finish, are definite buys!!
