Tasting Notes:

Nose: Notes of citrus and elderflower nicely integrate with bonfire smoke. Also touches of forest floor, damp moss and tinned fruits. Whispers of embers, ash and tobacco leaves too.

Taste: Oily mouthfeel with vegetal peat, tinned pineapple and ripe bananas, but also whiffs of white pepper. Slightly astringent, hints of plaster and a medicinal touch. Liquorice too.

Finish: Lingering spices, sauerkraut and medicinal peat. Long with a tinge of ash.


About the Distillery:

One island, two distilleries. For hundreds of years, to increase their income, small Arran communities made their own spirit in illicit home-made stills. The resulting whisky, which became known as ‘Arran Waters’, was smuggled from Lagg and sold on mainland Scotland. Lagg distillery revives this legacy, albeit this time legally, of coarse!
