This is a 2000 vintage single malt from the Isle of Arran distillery; a combination of european and american oak casks. There is only 6,000 bottles available. Named after the northern summits of the island which are shaped as a human resting, there is nothing sleeping in this whisky.
It has a stunning dark orange color and a rich nose. There is some spices (cinnamon perhaps), sultanas and liquorice in this. The taste is complex and changing. Fruity with a citrus tanguyness. A bit too much tanguy in my taste, but the finish brings back the sweetness with smoother fruit flavour.
This is a highly enjoyable whisky, even more knowing that a part of the profit goes to the National Trust of Scotland, to restore the paths and maintain the landscape of the mountains it is named after!
