Here’s what Arran has to say:
In this Smugglers´ Series Vol.2 ´The High Seas´ we pay tribute to the exuberant character of those striving to outwit the Government´s representatives in the pursuit of the production of the famed Arran Waters. This dram is a powerful marriage of whisky matured in the ﬁ nest rum casks with time-honoured peated spirit and a rich layer of ﬁ rst-ﬁ ll Bourbon barrel adding sweetness and fruit. The use of rum casks in the maturation serves as recognition of Arran´s importance, in years gone by, in the trade of diverse, black market liquor. The resulting liquid is complex, full of character and a perfect tribute to these independent characters of Arran.
Arran’s “High Seas” is a Limited Edition of 8,700 Bottles Worldwide. Bottled at Natural Cask Strength 55.4% abv.
Unique release including our classic un-peated Arran Malt matured in 1st Fill Bourbon Barrels, some of our heavily peated Arran Malt at 50ppm and Arran Malt fully matured in ex-Rum casks.
