The nose showcases aromas of rich oak with a gentle nutmeg note. Sweeter aromas of baked ripe figs, sultanas, and black cherries. The palate opens with notes of Fruit cake with toasted almonds and cinnamon. The juicy zestiness of oranges and mandarins mellow perfectly with manuka honey, muscovado sugar, baked apricots, and an interesting white pepper note that provides even more complexity. The finish is creamy and spicy with dark chocolate, walnuts, and dark fruit compote.
The Arran 25 Year Old marks a significant milestone for the Lochranza Distillery as some of their oldest, original whisky casks come of age. A small number of precious casks are married together to form this liquid gold. We are delighted to present it as the ultimate core range expression of Arran Single Malt.
