Arran Machrie Moor 5th Edition Single Malt Whisky
70cl, 46% abv
Arran Machrie Moor 5th Edition Single Malt Whisky is the fifth edition in Arran's peated series. It is named after the Machrie Moor peat bog on the west coast of the island where bronze Age stone circles and standing stones are strewn across its barren, undulating terrain. One of the stone circles is known as Fingal's Cauldron Seat, where sits a stone with a carved hole. The legendary warrior giant Fingal is said to have tethered his favourite dog Bran to this stone. This peated expression of the Arran Single Malt perfectly captures the rugged beauty and lore of the landscape. It is lightly peated at 20ppm.
Nose: Dried grass, peat smoke and hints of vanilla and tropical fruit.
Palate: Fresh pineapple and lemon zest, malty notes give added depth.
Finish: Long and lingering; citrus fruits prevail with an extra note of peat smoke.
