Arran Malt Standard Line-up: 10, 14, 18, 12CS

I’ve had the privilege of trying some pretty unique and cool Arran bottlings and they’ve cemented Arran as one of my favourite distilleries. So when my wife and I went to the Isle of Arran and the distillery, I was quite excited to see they had some minis for sale of the standard expressions so I could see what the base spirit tastes like.

We both decided that we loved Islay’s after the great scratch and sniff taste… Continue reading Ardbeg Uigeadail
