Arran began their first distillery in Lochranza, a village on the Isle of Arran, Scotland, nearly 30 years ago. Close to Loch na Davie, the location was ideal for a unique source of fresh water for distilling. Later, in 2019 they opened their second distillery at Lagg, a village on the southern part of the island. Here, they developed their distinct style of peated single malt and continued to grow their scotch-making craft. From their brand-new packaging style 2020 release of their series of wine cask finishes comes Arran Single malt Sauternes Cask Finish. After their initial maturation in oak casks for 8 years, this single malt was finished in hand selected Sauternes wine casks. This luxurious meeting of sweet white Bordeaux wine and the bright Scottish Arran character creates a wonderfully sweet dram. On the nose is sweet honey and citrus leading into a honeyed palate with an intense zestiness balanced with vanilla, sultana, and toasted oak notes. The finish is also sweet with complementary notes of apricots, melon and honeysuckle. An ideal dram, this Arran Single malt pairs well with a creamy toffee or fudgy pudding.
