Isle of Arran Distillers announced this back in February and now, the eagle has landed. This is a special edition bottling limited to just 6,000 worldwide, and it's well worth a taste.
The single malt was drawn from a combination of 14 bourbon barrels and 7 sherry Hogsheads, all selected by Master Distiller James MacTaggart from the 1999 distillation.
The Arran Eagle has been named for, and dedicated to, the pair of Golden Eagles who nest behind the distillery in the mountain above Lochranza.
Nose: Light and estery with tropical fruit salad, vanilla and caramel. Some nuttiness here too.
Palate: There's the typical buttery notes one expects from Arran, cut with some great citrus notes. It also has a sponge cake and meringue sweetness.
Finish: Note overly long but ripe with fresh fruit and honey.
Overall: A lovely light whisky that nevertheless makes a big impact.

Found this recently at a great price while searching for an Island malt. MoM notes are pretty spot on, lots of fruit, toffee, nuts and a bit of brine but not much citrus. Taste-wise it's a very pleasant and smooth dram but be warned, it's very sweet. No peat to be found and if it wasn't for the slight briny note you'd suspect it was a Speysider. Very reminiscent of Old Pulteney 12yr but sweeter. If you manage to spot a bottle don't hesitate to buy it.As a side note, the cork was much like a wine cork and very dry. It ended up cracking at the top, a first for me. It didn't affect the contents though as the whisky was still quite nice.
