This latest Arran release, will initially be released as an inaugural batch of 9,000 bottles, but will then form part of the brands core range, along with their 18, 14 and 10 Year Old expressions.
In-keeping with their traditional style, Arran 21 Year Old is said to be rich and sweet and have initial flavours of dark chocolate, grapefruit and ginger, before giving way to a lasting finish of soft spices and figs.
Isle of Arran Distillers are approaching another significant milestone in their history with the construction of the new Lagg distillery in the South of the island. It is expected to be fully operational in 2019, and will increase production capacity to 2m litres a year.
Commenting on the launch, James MacTaggart, Master Distiller at The Isle of Arran Distillers, said: “We’re extremely proud to have produced a dram that showcases our traditional Arran style, while the extended maturation process adds an extra elegance and complexity. I’m sure that the ever-growing community of Arran Malt lovers will be able to taste an elevated version of the whisky that they’ve come to know and enjoy. It’s an immensely exciting time for the company and the island, with the release of this 21 year-old bottle and looking forward to the completion of the new Lagg distillery next year.”
