Scotch whisky producer, Isle of Arran Distillers, has released The Devil’s Punch Bowl Chapter II.
The new single malt whisky, named Angels & Devils, is the second in a "trinity of ungodly spirits”. The first, Chapter I, the winner of a World Whiskies Design Awards, sold out shortly after it was released last year.
Described by master distiller James MacTaggart as a “true contrast of light and shade”, the whisky is made using 27 different Arran casks.
Commenting on the flavour of the new release, James said: “With vibrant notes of classic dried fruits, light spice and cigar box, layered over a sherry-sweet base, Angels & Devil’s drinks more like a dream than a nightmare.
“Bottled at natural strength without chill-filtration, the spirit has a devilish ABV of 53.1%. This dram will not disappoint as notes of dark chocolate and delicate butterscotch spice set taste buds alive.”
Angels & Devils is based around Sherry Hogsheads and includes Arran’s oldest peated Arran barrels from 2004.
Just 6,660 bottles will be released worldwide.
Euan Mitchell, managing director, said: “We were thrilled with the reception our first edition of The Devil’s Punch Bowl received and we’re sure this one will be met with the same approval.
“The whisky is being distributed on a strict allocation basis, as we’re already enjoying a high level of demand both in the UK and from export markets.”
The Devil’s Punch Bowl Chapter II Angels & Devils is released worldwide at the beginning of July and will be available in the UK, key European markets, Asia, Canada, the US, and online at www.arranwhisky.com. RRP £72.99 for 70 cl.
