Following the limited-edition release in the Pure By Nature trilogy series, Arran 18 Years Old was added to the distillery’s core range in 2016. The whisky is aged in a combination of sherry and bourbon casks, and bottled at 46%. This older release comes with the original tube. Arran 18 Years Old is a luxurious single malt with a deep character and wonderfully balanced flavours. It is sweet on the nose with orchard fruits, honey, baked peaches, toasted almonds and subtle cinnamon. The palate is smooth and waxy with sweet notes of caramelised orange, dark chocolate, crème brûlée, brown sugar and ginger on a background of toasted oak. The finish is long with lingering hints of orchard fruits, brioche, dark chocolate, citrus, hazelnuts and toffee apples.
