Arran - The Green Welly Stop 50th Anniversary Release 2
Out of the 287 bottles we reserved a small amount of bottles for friends and family of the business to purchase and mark this terrific achievement. This achievement was to mark The Green Welly stop turning 50 years young....
We have a few of these numbers available to order now.
Here are the small amount of bottles with special numbers reserved that were allocated but never found new homes.
2015 marks The Green Welly Stop at 50 Years of Age.
Back in 1965 this little business was started. When purchased, it included a 6 bedroom house, post office and shop, two traveling vans (with two resident mice - free of charge), petrol pumps and a coal business. In the earlier views of the business you can see the little shed to the right of the petrol pumps -this was the 'Shell Shop' where you paid for your fuel.
A lot has happened since, name change, additions, more additions, car park, motorbikes and even more!
So without further ado - the chosen cask, to follow up on the GlenDronach 2003, it had to be a beauty, we had been looking at a few options, and trying to arrange the price around the same marker was proving more and more difficult.
We took the decision to have a taster of Arran whisky.
I could nose this whisky all day and night.
Butter popcorn (butterkist) coupling with heather and fudge.
Palate - we had such a complex spicy/pepperiness, french apple tart, toffee dessert, rich and smooth.
