This is a sweet, fruity whisky from the Isle of Arran and it was aged in a single cask (a refill sherry hogshead). The cask was laid down on the 13th June 1996, aged for 16 years and bottled on the 21st November 2012. A release of just 218 numbered bottles from our Single Cask Series...
Nose: Seaside aromas with soft, youthful malt. Hints of orange blossom honey. Apple strudel with brandy butter and dried mango.
Palate: Buttery palate with stem ginger in syrup, a touch of sweet Gewurztraminer, nutmeg and pannacotta. Barrel char and allspice.
Finish: Wine-like finish with over-ripe grapes, cassia bark and clove oil.

My immediate thought when nosing was that this is very malty, then there's a spicy ginger note which is quickly followed by softer notes; gentle honey and some orange blossom. There is also herbal note that I couldn't put my finger on. After a little time to air I stated to get some sultanas and green grapesOn the palate there's an initial sweet note which slowly builds with spicy ginger. There is a definite wine like note although I'm not familiar with many white wines, especially sweet Gewurtztraminer. The ginger remains and gently fades with the faintest note of cinnamon while leaving a peppery tingle on the middle of the tongue and sweetness towards the back of the tongue.I'm beginning to become a bit of a fan of whisky from the Isle of Arran and this single cask from Master of Malt is another fine example.
