Arran Whisky - Côte-Rôtie Cask Finish 2019
The Arran Malt Côte Rôtie is a 2019 cask finish release from The Isle of Arran Whisky Distillery. This very limited edition red wine finish will appeal to whisky and wine drinkers alike! Bottled at 50% ABV, this is a full-bodied whisky, packed with flavour.
After initially maturing in traditional oak casks the Arran Single Malt in this bottling was specifically selected by James MacTaggart, Master Distiller, to be ‘finished’ in Côte-Rôtie Wine Casks sourced from a quality producer of this red wine from the Rhone Valley.
This whisky is bottled without artificial colouring or chill filtration to ensure a natural full-bodied and flavoursome single malt.
Net weight: 1.6kg
Appearance: Pale Ruby
Aroma: Spicy dark fruits, cherry and parma violets
Palate: Chocolate, fig and plums are underwritten by smoked oak, balanced well
by the light citrus nature of the Arran Malt.
Taste: The Côte-Rôtie expression is smooth and rich, leaving memory of candied fruit and smoked pepper. A beautifully complex dram which highlights an ideal paring between the Côte-Rôtie cask and the Arran Malt.
The Isle of Arran is both beautiful and unique. With its mountains, lowlands, glens, lochs and royal castles, it has all the scenery of Scotland and affectionately known as ‘Scotland in Miniature’. The Isle of Arran Distillery was built in the foothills of the village of Lochranza in 1994 and the first spirit ran from the stills on 29th June 1995.
