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.

As with so many things, I find balance to be preferable to extremes. So it is with this beautiful dram from Arran. The limited 20 year expression - the first release in their Explorers Series - is a superb sherried expression without being an over the top sherry bomb. The robust malt after aging for nearly 20 years in a blend of bourbon and sherry hogsheads was already sublime (just taste the standard 18 year!). It is pushed over the edge by a finishing in the highest quality bodega direct sherry butts from none other than Bodegas Tradicion - a house of impeccable balance and nuance. The graceful vinous quality of the sherry isn't lost here as it is in so many sherried Scotches. A buffet of dried fruits and nuts is on display in every phase. They're gracefully salted. Sweet malt and honey complete the picture.
