Character Goatson
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.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Arran is the first distiller on the island since 1837, when the "Lagg Distillery" closed its doors.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
