Barrel Reserve is a fresh, vibrant expression of Arran Single Malt with the traditional hallmarks of classic Arran citrus and a delicious layer of vanilla sweetness. 

Production Notes

100% matured in first-fill Bourbon Barrels. This expression combines casks at 7 - 8 years old with older casks to create a fresh and vibrant introduction to Arran Single Malt.

It is distilled and matured at Lochranza, lightly filtered and bottled at 43%.  The colour is entirely natural.

We love the Barrel Reserve for its flexibility.  It bottled at a slightly lower ABV of 43% and works equally well as a short serve, or in a longer drink.  

Tasting Notes

Lemon, citrus fruits and green apple.
