A 1996 vintage Arran exclusive to TWE for our 15th anniversary. Distilled on 11 December, it was aged in a sherry cask for 17 years, and bottled on 9 June 2014. Big on the nose yet elegant on the palate.Tasting Notes (2)

Tasting Note by Stuart P
Big aromas of dates, damson jam and stewed fruit with a refreshing hint of greengage, too, then the sweetness follows: custard tarts, fresh pastries, orange marmalade and dark chocolate.
More elegant than the nose would suggest; nevertheless, the rich fruit takes centre stage, supported by candied orange peel and a welcome clean backnote. Rich and mouthfilling texture.
Nutty spice and cocoa powder.Comment: Amazing colour, heading towards PX Sherry territory. The perfect example of what a top-notch sherry cask can do to a whisky. So rich and alive, but refreshing, too.
Producer's Tasting Notes
This elegant sherried Arran is reminiscent of crème brûlee, with soft dried fruits and spice.
Unexpected soft floral notes intermingle with cinnamon, cloves and fruit-cake richness.
A lovely toasty oak note lingers under a layer of Arran's signature toffee-apple character.
