This single cask from Arran spent 8 years in a first-fill ex-Bourbon cask before being transferred to an ex-Pinot Noir wine cask for the final four years of maturation. The nose has notes of red grapes, toasted oak, vanilla, honey, dried flowers, and a hint of allspice. The taste is fruity and thick with red grapes, a touch of apples, ginger, vanilla, a mild cinnamon spice, and a hint of brown sugar underneath. The finish is lingering, thick, and sweet. (June, 2013)
