First released in 2010 in Arran's Cask Finishes range, this whisky is matured in ex-bourbon barrels before being finished in casks that once held Amarone, a dry Italian red wine. Nonchillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at 50%.
Nose: Cherry, dark chocolate and Turkish delight with oranges and almonds.
Palate: Sweet plums, raisins and apricots with vanilla, tobacco, caramel. citrus zest and berries. The wine cask influence is obvious but not overpowering.
Finish: Sweet and slightly drying with pepper spicy.
