About The Arran Devil’s Punch Bowl Chapter III The Fiendish Finale
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.
Devil’s Punch Bowl Chapter III was named Highlands/Islands Whisky of the Year by Whisky Advocate

Arran Distillers is a whisky producer from Scotland’s Isle of Arran, which was founded in 1994 by Harold Currie, a former managing director at Chivas, and two associates. A year later, the company’s first distillery opened in the island’s northernmost village of Lochranza, which was selected for the high quality of its water. This marked the return of whisky making to the island, which at various times in the early 1800s had over 50 illicit distilleries making superlative spirit. The island’s only licensed distillery then was in Lagg, operating from 1825 to 1837. The Arran distillery’s Visitor Centre was opened on 9th August 1997 by none other than Her Majesty The Queen, who was presented with two casks for Princes William and Harry on the occasion. These casks are still slumbering peacefully in Warehouse 1. In 1998, the first cask of Arran Single Malt Scotch Whisky was opened after 3 years of maturation by Scottish film star Ewan McGregor. This was the first legal dram on Arran for over 160 years.
Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
