Released as part of Arran's Icons of Arran range (commemorating the symbols of Island life), this 1998 vintage features a picture of Ruaraidh, Arran's beloved Westie. It was made using twenty two sherry hogsheads, carefully blended together to recreate Ruaraidh's favourite style of whisky. We're joking of course, you must never give whisky to dogs. Ever. They can't have chocolate either. Apparently. No one ever tries, it's just one of life's rules. A release of 6,000 bottles.

Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
During construction, a rare Golden Eagle nested on the construction site. They halted construction until the eaglets had fully fledged, and were ready to move on.
