Arran The Robert Burns Single Malt
Arran // Islands, Scotland
This single malt whisky is named for Scotland's favorite son, poet and lyricist, Robert Burns. The types of casks used are ex-bourbon which account for about 70% of the production with the remainder comprised of ex-sherry casks. Keep your eyes open for a blended whisky also from Arran honoring Robert Burns.

"Honey and cereal are abundant on the nose along with a dollop of vanilla. This malt continues with the breakfast notes and a dash of cinnamon on the palate. Pairing this with a serving of haggis and reciting a few verses of Robbie Burns' poems would do very nicely, but you could also simply raise a glass to the bard and enjoy."
