Whisky Focus - Icons of Arran Series The Eagle

Icons of Arran Series The Eagle


13th February 2012

Isle of Arran whisky have announced the fourth and final bottling bottling in there popular Icons of Arran series, The Eagle.

Yes, the Eagle has finally landed at the Isle of Arran Distillery. The pair of Golden Eagles, who nest in the mountains above Lochranza, have been an integral part of the Arran story since the Distillery was built in 1995 and feature on every bottle of The Arran Malt.

This much anticipated final release from the Icons Series is a 1999 distillation which was drawn from a combination of 14 ex-Bourbon Barrels and 7 ex-Sherry Hogshead barrels specially selected by Arran Distillery Manager, James MacTaggart. The Eagle is spectacular, powerful and yet graceful just like the Birds of Prey themselves.

The Icons of Arran The Eagle is a limited edition of 6000 bottles worldwide, bottled at 46% it is non-chill filtered with no added colouring, just how we like it.
 

Icons of Arran The Eagle Tasting Notes


Producer's Tasting Notes:

Nose: Tropical fruit salad with hints of vanilla pod and caramel coated hazelnuts.

Taste: Buttery lemon drizzle cake- sweet but with a fresh citrus burst!

Finish: Captivating combination of fresh fruit and the natural sweetness of honey. Sit back, relax and let the final Icon send your palate soaring like an Eagle across to the Isle of
Arran.
