Arran Smuggler The Illicit Stills is the first release in the Smugglers’ Series, which pays homage to the Isle of Arran’s rich history of illicit whisky distilling. So if you ever feel the need to smuggle your whisky, you can carry it in the snazzy ‘book’ that this Arran fits in perfectly! Be aware that, in contrast to back in the day, we have X-ray scanners now… This edition is made with both unpeated, medium-peated and heavily-peated malt to recreate the peaty style of whisky that was prevalent during the 18th and 19th centuries. The whisky matured in port pipes and bourbon barrels, and was bottled in 2015 at a cask strength of 56.4%. Only 8700 bottles of Arran Smuggler The Illicit Stills were released.
