    C: Following on, this is also fairly woody though with a clearer divide between cask & spirit. There’s also a youthfulness about this compared to the Glentauchers, though our Arran doesn’t match the former whisky’s depth. Does deliver beautifully well however, with water bringing the chew. A very decent older Arran that also loves a decent maturation time.

    A pleasant dram, but I was expecting more from a 21 year old - still decent though.

      Sherbert lemons and custard with a little sharpness.

      The typical "Arran" profile is there. but very gentle (quite an achievement given its 52%)

      Quite short - an initial burst of warmth, but then a quiet lingering heat - like falling off a cliff the main excitement is early doors.
