The second release from Arran's Explorer Series comes Lochranza Castle. This 21 year old Arran single malt has been matured in Sherry Hogsheads before being finished in Amontillado Sherry Casks sourced directly from Bodegas Tradicion in Jerez De La Frontera, Spain. The resulting elegant and flavoursome whisky perfectly compliments the majestic scenery and natural beauty of our home village of Lochranza.
Tasting Notes: Caramelised almonds and chocolate covered crystallised ginger on the nose. Bright and mouth coating, showing notes of honeycomb and salted caramel. Herbaceous accents offset the orchard fruit which comes to the fore to display the ever-present Arran house style. The finish is enigmatic, developing toward Assam tea and subtle cigar smoke. A resurgence of freshness completes the circle. A fabulous example of Arran in more advanced years.
