The third release in Arran’s Devil’s Punch Bowl series, this whisky was named Highlands/Islands Whisky of the Year by Whisky Advocate.
Founded in 1994 by Harold Currie, the Arran Distillery is one of the last remaining independent distilleries in Scotland. “The reason the distillery was built on the Isle of Arran,” says James MacTaggart, Arran’s master distiller, “was because there is a very good water supply here. In fact, it was tasted and it was decided that it was probably one of the best water supplies in Scotland for making whisky.” When the distillery was finally completed in 1995 — construction was halted for nearly a year when a pair of Golden Eagles built their nest near the distillery — it became the first legal distillery on the Isle of Arran in over 150 years.
The Arran Devil’s Punch Bowl Chapter III The Fiendish Finale is the third release in the Devil’s Punch Bowl Series (the previous releases, which were crafted in 2012 and 2013, sold out quickly and received critical acclaim). The whisky takes its name from a spectacular geological formation on the Isle of Arran, where a waterfall plunges into a turbulent, cauldron-shaped pool.
“Chapter III of The Devil’s Punch Bowl is crafted from a marriage of casks of whisky that were previously matured in sherry and bourbon, along with French oak barriques. As a result, the whisky has an floral and fruity aroma, with hints of peach and citrus. Notes of vanilla, cinnamon, cardamom, pepper and chilis dominate the palate, and lead to a finish accented by touches of spice.
