Though the Cask Finish line of single malts from Arran lack an age statement, the whisky does age for 8 years, more or less, in ex-bourbon casks before then aging in the wine cask, in this case, it is port. They are all bottled at 100 proof and are un-chill-filtered and not peated.

Tasting Notes

"Orange peel and peanuts come to mind on first inspection. Fruits are present, naturally, particularly dried berries. The whisky isn't too heavy handed with the port wine, which is a good thing. The cereal notes are still present. This isn't as dynamic as the Amarone Cask Finish, but is a fine dram to try. "
