From Master of Malt's Single Cask Series, a single cask natural cask strength Array whisky.

This is a truly enveloping whisky from the Isle of Arran.

Lagavulin 16 year
Full amber in color with adominant sherry nose. Full-bodied yet smooth. The dryness is offset by the sweetness of the sherry character. Salty notes and a huge powerful peaty finish.
