Arran Sauternes Cask

The Arran Malt finished in Sauternes casks. These casks that previously held Bordeaux sweet wine give a honeyed sweetness to the isle of Arran’s only single malt distillery.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Initially acacia honey but then opening up to apricots, bananas and pears. With time a floral elegance presents itself.

Palate Sweet but cut with warm spice. Lemon zest announces itself with the addition of water and a slight saltiness plays with this dram's sweet character.

Finish Seville orange, Sauternes and an ounce of honey in a crisp finish.

Overall Yet another successful cask-finish from this island distillery.

Reviews for Arran Sauternes Cask Finish
Arran Sauternes Cask
I haven’t yet opened the bottle. I bought it because I know it’s a favourite already. I was very impressed by my first experience with Master of Malt. The voucher process was very fair and straightforward to follow. The prompt delivery and communication from the courier was excellent. Great all round experience.

This is amazing
I recall many years ago getting a Bruchladdich sauternes finished 16YO. It was sublime. This Arran version is very, very good, and gamely matches the Bruchladdich version. It is not sweet, don’t be put off by the Sauternes finish. Instead it adds a wonderful new and different note to the light peaty taste of island whiskies to make this a delicious dram. Highly recommended, but please wait until I have had the chance to snaffle a few more bottles before rushing to buy it. — James

Just buy it, another beautiful Arran expression
An absolute beauty. Hints of honey, lemon drizzle cake and apricot wrapped up an a dry oaky tingle. This bottle didn’t stand a chance 😌👌

Great whisky
One of the best single malts I've ever tasted and i've tasted a lot. Sweet honey and fruits.

Wondering
Is this whisky a little bit harsh? Or maybe it has hard tannins, woody oak flavor and peppery spices? Not my type of favourite whisky anyway.

My favourite
As I used to live across the road from the distillery, I’ve got around 6 different Arran’s, but this one is one of my favourites.
Very fruity and easy to drink.

Also try the Port Cask and Amarone.

Arran, great distillery
Sweet, fresh like all bottles from Arran . Also try the Madeira Cask finish and the Amarone Cask finish. Very special. 50% ABV, no color added and unchillfiltered. Every bottle is worth the 40 euro's.
