Côte-Rôtie Cask Finish Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2019
With all the excitement surrounding Isle of Arran Distillers new venture, the Lagg Distillery that’s expected to open in 2019, you could be forgiven for missing their latest limited edition release: Côte-Rôtie Cask Finish. But wine lovers will kick themselves if they overlook this one…
Following on from an Amarone finish in 2017 and a Marsala finish in 2018, for 2019 Master Distiller James McTaggart has handpicked a few casks to be finished in red wine barrels sourced from an excellent – but top secret – winery in the Rhône Valley. Having spent around seven additional months maturing in wood that previously held Côte-Rôtie, this Scotch is a riot of jammy berries, strawberry marshmallow, black pepper, dark chocolate, cherry liqueurs, figs, plum crumble and smoked wood. With its rosé hue and summer fruit, this is a perfect whisky for the summer months.
In the shadow of Goatfell at the north of the island, Arran boasts some of the purest water in all of Scotland. This remote young distillery had to delay their opening to avoid disturbing a pair of nesting Golden Eagles, but it has rocketed into the whisky hall of fame and is much-loved by connoisseurs throughout the world.
