We are delighted to present a 12 year-old Single Malt bottled in honour of our Master Distiller James MacTaggart.

This characterful limited edition of the Arran Single Malt has been specially created by Master Distiller James MacTaggart as a stunning example of a successful partnership between whisky and cask. James has featured a selection of some very rare and valuable Palo Cortado Sherry Casks from Jerez in this bottling, casks which he chose by hand himself in the company of the producer.

Cider apples accentuate the Arran house style before the warmth of ginger returns alongside a rich impression of exceptional sherry casks.

These casks add a delightful and warming dimension to another memorable and classic expression of Arran Single Malt. A truly unique partnership between a high quality independent producer in Spain and a quality independent producer in Scotland.

There are 12,000 bottles of this edition available worldwide.

  • Nose

    Bright and mouth-watering; Seville orange marmalade, peaches and mango freshness are followed by the warmth of root ginger and a waft of drying grass and gorse bushes.

  • Palate

    Rich in chocolate orange, quince jelly and the zest of citrus fruits. The subtle tang of yeasty, buttered sourdough and a kick of rock salt come through as the Palo Cortado cask displays its influence.

  • Finish

    Sweetness, Bitter orange, Citrus, Dark chocolate, Salty, Memorable.
