From the bottle: In this smuggler's series vol. 3 "The Exciseman" we round off a popular series of characterful expressions of our Arran single malt. The final casks we have chosen create a powerful marriage of whisky matured in the finest madeira casks with whisky matured in small quarter casks. The use of these casks serves as recognition of Arran's importance, in years gone by, in the trade of diverse black market liquor and the small casks which would have been easiest to transport. The resulting liquid is complex, with a concentrated burst of fruit and rich sweetness, it is a wonderful whisky to end a series which has so perfectly paid tribute to the independent characters of Arran over the centuries.
Distillery Background: Arran is the only working distillery on an island that was once home to many of the illicit stills on the west coast of Scotland.
