One of the more mature aged expressions in Arran’s core range, the Arran 18 Year-Old Single Malt is intense yet perfectly balanced, and packed full of character.
Aged in a combination of ex-sherry and ex-Bourbon barrels, this rich and complex aged single malt has all of the Arran hallmarks, with exceptional depth from the influence of oak.
This single malt is crafted at Arran’s Lochranza distillery with a blend of Scottish-grown malted barley, and fresh water from nearby Loch na Davie, reputedly the source of the purest water in Scotland.
Once the malts have been fermented with yeast, the ‘wash’ is then double distilled in copper pot stills, before being laid down to mature in a combination of ex-Bourbon and ex-sherry casks, where the oak wood imparts its natural colour and character.
Isle of Arran Distillers bottle this single malt at 46% abv, and to present the whisky in its unadulterated, purest form, and retain its full flavour, choose to not chill filter.
Scottish-grown malted barley, yeast, Loch na Davie water, matured in ex-Bourbon and ex-sherry hogshead barrels.
Rich and complex, this mature single malt delivers intensified Arran citrus notes, orchard fruits and dark chocolate. In short, a satisfyingly refined expression that is best enjoyed neat.
