Arran 1996 Independent Whisky Bars of Scotland Exclusive

A single cask Arran bottled exclusively for seven of Scotland's best independent whisky bars. This cask was filled on 25th June 1996 and bottled 22 years later on 11th April 2019 at cask strength, unchilfiltered and with natural colour. Only 231 bottles available.

Official Tasting Notes by Angus MacRaildNose : A charming and rather rusty style of sherry on the initial nose. Lots of earthy, leafy petrichor character, bitter chocolate, hints of earl grey tea and some darker fruit tones such as sultana and fig. Fresh, clean and with a few mineral notes chiming in the background.

Palate : The palate is rather more punchy and showing a pronounced, savoury sherry profile. Some gamey notes of meat stocks, dark fruit stewed in brandy, freshly brewed coffee and hints of wood spice and some grippy tannin. Satisfyingly full-bodied and complex.

Finish : The finish is long, slightly leather, umami and with a light saline flourish in the aftertaste.
