Arran 21 Years Old
70cl / 50.2%
Whisky Show 2018
- Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky
- The Whisky Exchange
A rich and spicy Arran, selected and bottled specially for The Whisky Exchange Whisky Show's 10th Anniversary. At 21 years old, it's almost as old as Arran gets – the distillery started production in 1995 – and the age has helped create an integrated dram, with layers of spice and fruit.
Arran 21 Years Old Reviews
Tasting notes by Billy Abbott
Nose: Butterscotch, Danish butter biscuits and lemon drizzle cake – a perfect afternoon tea. The butterscotch remains, but zesty lemons and soft spice creep in around the edges, along with lime jelly and peachy touches
Palate: Sweet to start but quickly balanced by char and gentle spice. Baked apples and vanilla sugar run through the middle, surrounded by sap and green leaves. A touch of water tames the space and reveals layers of orchard fruit.
Finish: Baked apples and glacier mints fade to leave oat cakes and lemon zest.
