Arran James MacTaggart Bottling Note
James MacTaggart has been Master Distiller at Arran for 10 years - what better excuse to release a limited edition whisky?! This expression was created using whisky matured in first-fill bourbon barrels - which were laid down during MacTaggart's first few months as Arran Master Distiller in 2007. 12,000 bottles were produced
Nose: Cream soda, orange oil, a hint of celery salt, cardamom and grapefruit.
Palate: Green apples and ripe nectarine. Freshly-made caramel, a crack of black pepper and an intriguing waft of curry spices.
Finish: Lingering rye-like herbaceous spice, with yellow plum for balancing sweetness.
