Bottled to celebrate the 12th anniversary of Arran’s Distillery Manager James MacTaggart, The Man With The Golden Glass is a 12-year-old single malt, finished in Palo Cortado sherry casks. A fruity, spicy whisky, it has aromas of ripe peaches, sweet marmalade and spicy ginger. The palate offers notes of zesty citrus, dark chocolate, buttered toast and a hint of salt, before a long finish with notes of cider apple and fresh ginger.
Nose: Bright and mouth-watering; Seville orange marmalade, peaches and mango freshness are followed by the warmth of root gingers and a waft of drying grass and gorse bushes.
Palate: Rich in chocolate orange, quince jelly and the zest of citrus fruits. The subtle tang of yeast, buttered sourdough and a kick of rock salt come through as the Palo Cortado cask displays its influence.
Finish: Cider apples accentuate Arran’s house style before the warmth of ginger returns alongside a rich impression of these exceptional sherry casks.
