A fresh, fruity and spicy limited edition from Arran’s distillery at Lochranza. Isle of Arran distillers have seen great success in the past decade and this bottling pays tribute to one of the men who made it possible; Master Distiller James MacTaggart. James has overseen the production of Arran’s whiskies since 2007 and this bottling is made up from some of the earliest casks produced under his watch.

Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Freshly made cider, coconut water/fresh shavings, lemon oil and a hint of sea brine.
Palate: The warmth of white pepper is immediate and then softens as boiled sweets start to show. Apple pastries, barley sugar and a complex winey note are in the mid-palate.
Finish: the finish is long and has all the freshness of a well-made whisky-sour cocktail which sweetens to candy floss as it fades slowly. A delightful expression of Arran where the true character and complexity shines through beautifully.

Arran or the Isle of Arran (/ˈærən/; Scottish Gaelic: Eilean Arainn pronounced [elan ˈarɪɲ]), at 432 square kilometres (167 sq mi), is the largest island in the Firth of Clyde and the seventh largest Scottish island. Historically part of Buteshire, it is in the unitary council area of North Ayrshire!

I think you will like this one.

“Whisky, drink divine!
Why should drivelers bore us
With the praise of wine
While we’ve thee before us?”
(Joseph O’Leary)

“Love makes the world go round? Not at all. Whiskey makes it go round twice as fast.”
Compton Mackenzie

Here’s tae the heath, the hill and the heather,
The bonnet, the plaid, the kilt and the feather.

A h-uile la sona dhuibh‘s gun la idir dona dhuibh!
May all your days be happy ones.
