Arran Sauternes Cask
Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 50%vol
This sweeter side of Arran Single Malt makes an ideal dessert dram with complementary notes of apricots, melon and honeysuckle.
To achieve this rich partnership, the traditional Arran Single Malt is matured in oak casks for 8 years and is then ‘finished’ in a selection of Sauternes wine casks.
These Bordeaux sweet white wine casks are specifically selected by Arran’s Master Distiller from a talented small producer to ensure the notes from both wine and whisky make the perfect marriage. If you are looking for something that shows off the sweeter side of Arran Single Malt, this is the perfect choice for you. It pairs beautifully with a creamy toffee or fudge based pudding.
Nose: Honey sweetness and citrus
Palate: Richly honeyed and backed with a lifting zestiness which slides into spice and zingy salt. Once the dram opens out, vanilla and sultana stand out, followed by notes of toasted oak
Finish: Sweetness, honey, apricots, melon, honeysuckle
Producer: Isle of Arran Distillers Ltd, Lochranza, Isle of Arran, KA27 8HJ, Scotland
