The Arran Explorers Series

The Arran Explorers Series is a collection of limited edition expressions of The Arran
Single Malt. Each edition celebrates the outstanding scenic beauty and diversity of
nature on the Isle of Arran.

The picturesque village of Kildonan is situated on the southern coast of the Isle of Arran, with the small pear-shaped island of Pladda, just 1km from the coastline. The privately-owned island is home to Pladda lighthouse which was designed by Thomas Smith and is still active today. Established in 1790, the lighthouse has a commanding position at the southern end of the island.

The stunning view of Pladda can be seen clearly from Kildonan which is home to Silver Sands, one of the most beautiful beaches on Arran. Kildonan also boasts a castle which along with Lochranza Castle and Brodick Castle were important fortresses guarding Arran’s strategically important position in the approaches to the Firth of Clyde.

This view of Pladda island and Ailsa Craig from Kildonan is best taken in with a
dram of The Arran Single Malt in hand. This particular expression is 21 Years Old
and has been matured in Ex-Sherry Butts and Puncheons before being finished
in Ruby Port Casks sourced directly from Portugal. The resulting whisky perfectly
captures the breathtaking views of this part of the island. Take your senses
on an adventure around the Isle of Arran.

Tasting notes

Nose:
Rich and fruity; The “Arran” style remains at the heart of this whisky, with candied orange peel, nectarine and parma violets. Stewed summer fruits with a drizzle of vanilla custard.

Palate:
Sweet and tangy with a burst of strawberry liquorice, fresh raspberries and ginger. Cask influence adds another layer to the sweet fruit character, with flakes of hazelnut in the development.

Finish:
A truly multi-layered dram with a long lasting finish of red fruit, oak and a hint
of tobacco.
