Bottled at natural strength and without chill-filtration, The Devil’s Punch Bowl series is a testimony to the consistent superior quality of The Arran Malt across each year of production. For your elucidation the numbers of every cask, hand-picked for this bottling, have been listed on the inside of the box.
The nose is vibrant with the hallmark notes of classic dried fruits, light spice and cigar box as the base of Sherry comes to the fore and sets the tone for this complex dram.
Here the depth of the Sherry sweetness comes into its own. Notes of dark chocolate with a layer of delicate butterscotch spice mingle to create a rich initial burst of character. With a dash of water, the lighter shade of the Bourbon barrel emerges with soft citrus and vanilla notes dancing on the tongue.
Over time, the fresh citrus is counterbalanced by the earthy nature of the Peated barrels. The depth of spice and light twist of smoke will intrigue you long after the last drop has disappeared.
