This stunning ‘The Exciseman’ expression is the third volume of the Arran Smugglers Series, created at the popular island distillery. It was matured in ex-bourbon quarter casks and Madeira casks. The distillery chose Madeira casks in honour of the illicit distillers who were creating whisky over a hundred years ago on Arran, sourcing their casks from Madeira smugglers.
Despite being called “The Exciseman”, the Arran distillery has stated that this whisky actually “pays tribute to the exuberant character of those striving to outwit the Government’s representatives”.
With it’s beautiful bottle and box design and delicate and complex range of notes, this is a superb limited edition whisky that you don’t want to miss out on.
