Arran Smugglers' Volume 3 Bottling Note

The third and final release in the series, The Exciseman brings together whiskies matured in bourbon quarter casks and Madeira casks. (The latter being a nod to casks used by illicit distillers on Arran, who acquired them from Madeira smugglers.) Rather than a celebration of the feared exciseman, this Arran single malt "pays tribute to the exuberant character of those striving to outwit the Government’s representatives"!

Tasting Note by The Producer

Nose: The rich honeyed character is immediate on the nose, luxuriously decadent. The fresh coastal character is also evident. Apples, vanilla and a touch of spice are also subtly present with a hint of toasted oak.

Palate: It coats the tongue and the notes of apple and vanilla are in abundance. No hint of dryness on the palate, it grows in sweet intensity and provides a rounded mouthfeel. The addition of water opens up the complexity beautifully and reveals a lighter sweetness of candied lemon.

Finish: Long, luxurious and yet delightfully fresh. The notes of apple and citrus give a lightness of character whilst the body remains solidly complex and robust. A typical Arran with an added layer of sweetness.
