It’s finally here, Arran whisky have announced the release of a Arran 18 year old expression. As fans of the island distillery will know the new whisky follows last years limited edition of 9,000 bottles worldwide release of the Arran 17 year old and the previous years limited release of a Arran 16 year old.
The Arran 18 year old is the 3rd and final release in a limited edition trilogy which has paved the way for an official bottling of Arran 18 year old joining the Arran core range of whiskies this spring.
This Arran 18 year old will be available direct from the Arran web site from Monday 16th March, priced at £72.99. There will be a limit of 2 bottles per transaction as the number available from the site is limited. You should also be able to find the new whisky available from specialist whisky shops such as The Whisky Exchange soon after its launch on March 16th.
