Arran 21 Year Old The Explorers Series Volume 3 / Kildonan and Pladda Island

Although the Isle of Arran was once a hot-bed of distilling activity, there were no distilleries on the island for the majority of the 19th and 20th centuries. Isle of Arran Distillers opened their first distillery in 1995, and it quickly became a firm favourite. They bottled its first single malt in 1998, a limited edition 3 year old in a glass decanter. The distillery also produced a peated single malt called Machrie Moor, however an experimental second distillery on the other side of the island, called Lagg, is now the site of all the company’s peated production. As of 2018, the distillery was renamed Lochranza, however its single malt brand is still known by the old title, Arran.

This is the third release in Lochranza distillery's The Explorers Series. It replaced the now-discontinued Smugglers' Series which celebrated the island's illicit whisky history. This range instead celebrates the island's natural charms. 

This expression is titled Kildonnan & Pladda Island, with the label depicting the southern coast between the town of Kildonan and the island of Pladda.

This 21 year old was matured in ex-sherry butts and puncheons before being finished in ruby port casks from Portugal.
