This Arran 16 Year Old Single Cask Malt Whisky from the chaps at Master of Malt is a sweet, fruity whisky with a pale, straw coloured appearance.
One of the few remaining independent distilleries in Scotland, Arran has prospered in recent years.
It is a patron of the World Burns Federation, creating whiskies in honour of Scotland’s National Poet and also offers a cask purchase scheme.
This allows people the opportunity to own their own cask of whisky which can be stored on site at the distillery.
