Arran 1996 18 Year Old Single Malts of Scotland

A sherry-cask-matured dram from the Isle of Arran, aged for 18 years in a puncheon before bottling in August 2015. At 18 years old, it's about as old an Arran as you can get, with them only starting production a year earlier. While it's got the deep colour you'd expect from sherry maturation, on the palate the influence is more restrained, giving richness and complexity while letting the distillery's character shine. [+]
