Arran distillery celebrated its 21st anniversary in 2016 and they already had a limited anniversary bottling, but we had to wait some more before a wider public release was announced.
Launched at the end of 2018, only 9000 bottles of this delicious Arran 21 Year old were produced.
Rhubarb jam and dried fruits like prunes. Walnuts and cigar boxes. Hints of buttery pastry and herbs. Mouth: much more spicy. Ginger, cinnamon and pepper, including some charred wood. Malty notes and a light bitterness. Also dark chocolate and hazelnuts, later also walnuts. Back to sweet berries and light floral hints. Medium finish, more of this dark chocolate character with spices and bitter orange.
