We are delighted to present the White Stag Sixth Release, this time chosen by our Distillery Manager David Livingstone.
Tasked with selecting the casks for this year’s bottling, David identified an outstanding Sherry Hogshead and a Sherry Puncheon from 1997 which were married together to create this very special bottling for our community. The resulting whisky is 23 years old.
Age – 23 years
Cask Types – Sherry Hogshead & Sherry Puncheon
ABV: 53.8% Vol
Nose: Fruit and floral notes are dominant with a little touch of sweet spice. A note of baked apple pie is balanced by a hint of lemon meringue and a delicious promise of something powerful and expressive.
Palate: Zesty and bright with an enveloping sense of fresh island character. Delicate oak gives this whisky a complexity which gives way to wonderful rich and rewarding fruit with a drop of water. Citrus fruits develop more towards pear and tropical melon with a sweetness that grows with each sip.
Finish: A fruit cocktail with incredible complexity. This is an intense yet light Arran Single Malt which remains long on the palate long after the last sip. The true spirit of Lochranza lives long through its whisky. Allow yourself to sip and remember times spend on our beautiful island.
