Distillery: The Arran Distillery
Expression: The Arren Malt 14 years
Category: Single Malt Scotch
The Arran 14 was finished in sherry-hogshead and fresh bourbon casks for two years which gives it some interesting and unique flavor notes.
Plus, score it some extra points in the natural production category for being non-chill filtered.
This is a good example that age and a dark color isn’t a prerequisite for a superior whisky.
