This is a well-Sherried Single Malt from Arran with a deep, dense palate of rancio and cocoa.

Harold Currie was a senior director of Chivas. He somehow got it in his head that he could do Whisky better. Harold was also a fan of the Isle of Arran — an island in the middle of the Firth of Clyde which had at one time been home to at least fifty illegal distilleries. So he saved his pennies, took on a few investors, and broke ground on his dream in 1994. But two golden eagles built a nest on site and construction had to be stopped until the chicks were fully fledged. Solid move, right? Today, they produce a tidy range of Single Malt offerings, limited editions, special blends, and a Scottish cream Liqueur.

Turns out good old Harold COULD do it better.

Arran Sherry Cask The Bodega is a gem. It is a straight-ahead, no monkey business dram of Single Malt loveliness. They take Arran Single Malt and age it in first-fill Sherry casks from "a famous bodega in Jerez, Spain" for seven full years and then bottle it at near Cask Strength of 55.8% ABV. It is a pure expression of a Sherried Single Malt and it tastes brilliant.

Harold Currie is very patriotic, and a big fan of Robert "Bobby" Burns, the national poet of Scotland. The Distillery is an official sponsor of related Burns events, and has named special releases in his honor.
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.
Arran is the first distiller on the island since 1837, when the "Lagg Distillery" closed its doors.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
