Arran Explorers Drumadoon Point 23 year old Single Malt Whisky

The Arran Explorers Series is a collection of limited edition expressions of The Arran Single Malt. Each edition celebrates the outstanding scenic beauty and diversity of nature on the Isle of Arran.
To the west of the island you will pass through the pretty coastal village of Blackwaterfoot. North of the village, the main road leaves the coast for a few miles and bypasses Drumadoon Point. The scenery of the headland is breathtaking with a raised beach and dramatic cliffs formed from basalt columns. Drumadoon Point is home to Shiskine Golf Club and the view across Shiskine Golf Course towards Drumadoon Point is best appreciated with a dram of Arran Single Malt in hand.
This particular expression has been maturing for the last 23 years in ex Sherry Puncheons sourced directly from Jerez from a respected small producer. The resulting whisky perfectly captures the impressive and dramatic scenery of this part of the island. Take your senses on an adventure around the Isle of Arran.

The Isle of Arran distillery first started production on 29th June 1995, the first legal spirit to run on Arran for 160 years. The distillery was officially opened by the Queen in 1997, and produces a quality malt whisky that first became commercially available as a 10 year old in 2006.


Famous for the pair of eagles that nest nearby and feature on its bottles, it is one of the more easily accessible island distilleries. It’s size means all the mains processes can be viewed in one area, and in 2017 the distillery expanded from one pair of small stills to two.

Producer's Tasting Notes

Nose: A burst of sweet apple with an underlying maltiness – a classic expression of well-aged Arran. The sweet notes linger and are enriched by baked pastry and a dusting of icing sugar (think Apple Strudel). Rich and nutty in the background, bringing to life the influence of the casks used.

Palate: An initial wave of sweetness followed by spice; Spiced apple, cocoa powder and star anise. Flavours of dark chocolate and raisins also start to develop, creating a beautiful balance between Arran’s signature style and sherry cask maturation.

Finish: A long and warming finish, reflecting the sweetness and spice found on nose and palate. A dram that will leave you wanting to pour another!
