Machrie Moor second edition. Batch 2 is a limited edition peated (14ppm) expression of Aran single malt release of 12,000 bottles.
The bottle depicts Bran, favourite dog of the legendary warrior Fingal who is said to have tethered the dog to the standing stone Fingal’s Cauldron Seat. One of the many stone circles and standing stones that are strewn across Machrie Moor on the Isle of Arran.
Nose: Stormy beach - sublte notes of apple.
Palate: Classic Arran notes of apple and vanilla, back by iodine, parma violets and smoky citrus. Add water to find briny rockpools and fresh dulse mixing with orchard fruits.
Finish: Saltiness is more apparent with a twist of spice mingling alongside baked apples and honeysuckle.
Arran Single Malt Whiskey
Arran Distillery was commissioned by the Isle of Arran Distillers in 1995 and lies amid stunning scenery just to the south of Lochranza on the northern tip of the Isle of Arran. This distillery has four stills, dunnage warehouses, a visitor centre offering distillery tours and a distillery café. Arran distills both un-peated and peated malt spirit and matures its whiskey in sherry, bourbon, port and wine casks in order to produce an ever-evolving and expanding range of whiskies including Arran single malts such as Arran Machrie Moor and The Illicit Stills, and Arran blended scotch.
