Arran Marsala Cask Finish

The Arran distillery have really embraced the art of cask finshing, and we can't say enough good things about this light and flavourful Marsala wine finish. The fortified wine has infused the light Arran spirit with dark notes of cherries and plums. A excellently balanced dram.

Staff Tasting Notes

Nose: Gentle oak mingles with malty/cereal notes then the fruitier aspect to the nose begins to open up. The cherries and plums develop nicely as the separate strands of aromas slowly unfurl. Plenty going on (and on), a very rewarding introduction, best take your time over this one.

Palate: A very well rounded palate is accompanied by a pleasing mouth feel. Not being chill-filtered has left plenty texture. Given time an almost fizzy sensation is followed by dusty candied sugar, quite the sweet fruit bomb.

Finish: The sweet orchard fruits linger satisfyingly. The generous bottling strength is never intrusive, water brings out more of the sour notes from the Italian cask influence which lie long and comfortable on the palate.

Comments: A quite unique light pink tinge gives this dram an appealing appearance.

Official Tasting Notes Sweet oak and toffee apples with a subtle hint of candied orange peel demonstrate the combined complexity of the marsala cask and the fruity Arran malt.
