Here we have an exciting new launch from the Arran distillery – the first of their brand new Rare Batch series. This series will showcase a number of special cask maturations and to kick things off Arran has released Arran 15 Years Old Rare Batch French Oak Bordeaux. This delightful dram has been aged for 15 years in French Oak casks that previously held red wine from the Médoc region in Bordeaux. This gives the whisky a beautiful nose of dark berries, sultanas and tobacco. The creamy palate displays raspberry, orange, marmalade, a dusting of cinnamon and buttery croissants fresh out of the oven. The finish has a gentle spice, with preserved plums and ginger. We can’t wait to see what’s next in the Rare Batch range!
