The first release in a new series from the Arran distillery! The Smugglers' Series Volume 1 ("The Illicit Stills") is an homage to the history of less-than-legal distillation on the Isle of Arran in the 18th and 19th century. The single malt Scotch whisky is crafted from a selection of their malts, including unpeated and heavily peated stock, whisky matured in old bourbon barrels and whisky fully-matured in Port pipes! A fantastically presented expression - 8,700 bottles were produced. Nose: Packed with dried fruit, floral wafts and light BBQ embers. Subtle coastal elements too. Palate: Peat warmth really starts to build up here, alongside robust Christmas spices. Hints of Sherried plums and a touch of apple. Finish: Long and full, with plenty of smoke.
