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.

Character Dogson
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Arran is the first distiller on the island since 1837, when the "Lagg Distillery" closed its doors.
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.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
