The Arran Explorers’ Series is a collection of limited edition expressions
of The Arran Single Malt. Each edition celebrates the outstanding scenic
beauty and diversity of nature on the Isle of Arran.
As the ferry across the firth of Clyde nears its destination, the visitor will be granted
a first glimpse of ‘Scotland in Miniature’, the Isle of Arran. The broad sweep of
Brodick Bay, backed by dense woodland of Scots pine, is guarded by the island’s
highest peak, Goat Fell. With its varied terrain of sandy beach, verdant field,
impenetrable forest and craggy mountain pass, this magical island affords the
traveller a wide choice of outdoor pursuits.
This view from the foothills south of Brodick Bay is best taken in with a dram of The Arran
Single Malt in hand. This particular example is 20 years old and has been matured in
both Bourbon Barrels and Sherry Hogsheads before being finished in Oloroso Sherry
Butts sourced directly from Bodegas Tradicion in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. The
complex and multi-layered dram perfectly reflects the diversity, allure and charm of
this beautiful island. Take your senses on an adventure around the Isle of Arran.
NOSE Immediate notes of creamy toffee
emerge, with the fresh fruity citrus notes
of Arran also very evident. The promise
of something memorable.
PALATE Starts with an intense sweetness which
coats the tongue as the creamy toffee
develops into a treacle laced fudge.
Dark chocolate raisins and honey give
this dram delicious depth which stays
long on the palate. With time or a drop
of water, this dram opens up beautifully
and shows another side with soft oak
and hints of pink pepper.
FINISH Long and memorable. A real gourmet
dram which retains the sweetness of the
delicate Arran character with layers of
rich intense fruit. Welcome to Brodick Bay
and the beautiful Isle of Arran.
