From the Provenance range of Douglas Laing's collection. Provenance gives us access into single cask whisky at great ages and value for money, this Arran really proves that point. So this is an 8 year old, ex bourbon barrel Arran. Distilled in 2013 and bottled November 2021 with a yield of 343 bottles is a great example of single cask whisky reaching great heights. On the nose it shows hard candy and spiced oak backed by a lovely malty sweetness. The palate is gloriously thick and creamy with fresh tropical fruit and maple syrup. The finish is long, butter and rich, showing orange citrus and a lovely oatiness.£47.50 take off your 10% is £42.75!
