    From Angus:

    "I haven't tried any Arran for far too long, let's immediately rectify this unacceptable situation… Colour: straw. Nose: creamy porridge! At least that is the first impression I get, porridge with a big spoon of honey run through it. Then some very attractive notes of yellow plums and daffodils, sometimes I get aromas in colour co-ordination, which is absolutely the case here, this is a very 'yellow' whisky. Ah of course, now daffodils too! With water: I find it developing more towards dry cider, flowers and vase water. Feels quite summery, which is great because it's currently pissing with rain here in Edinburgh. Mouth: custard, sweet wines, cider apple, subtle hints of melon and some more robust barley sugar notes. With water: opens up more onto pure cereals, baking powder, starched linens, white flowers, small hints of hessian and white pepper. Rather big in fact with a lovely freshness. Finish: medium, grassy, lightly sappy, more cereals, seeds and various pollens and flowers. Comments: 8 years is a lovely age for many whiskies, don't you think? I'm a big fan of this humble wee Arran. Bags of freshness and easy charm. Feels as though it would make a superb highball, or is that still sacrilege to say?
    SGP: 541 - 86 points."
