The Isle of Arran used to be teeming with whisky, from smugglers and illegal farm stills to larger, legit distilleries. But the good times didn’t last and when the only remaining distillery closed in 1837, the whisky from Arran dried up. That was until 1995, when the first new distillery on Arran for over 150 years opened under the leadership of Harold Currie, a former head of Chivas who brought his whisky know-how to the Arran Renaissance. This Arran 15 Years Old Bourbon Cask 1996 #1410 was distilled back in 1996, only a year after the new distillery opened which makes it one of the earliest examples of an Arran malt. It was aged for 15 years in bourbon cask 1410 before being bottled up for us to enjoy.
