TASTING NOTE: Nose: perhaps the best Arran nose of all time: dry rose-petaly Turkish Delight moistened with grape and toasted almond ... then it starts getting really complex! Taste: melt-in-the-mouth arrival with succulent grape and bittersweet apricot and nuts. Finish: beautiful chocolate and latte mix as the soft fruit tantalises even further; so long your tastebuds will be tested like they have never been tested before. Balance: a true gold nugget of a bottling. Iím astonished at its total brilliance ... Score: 96 (Jim Murray, Whisky Bible, 2010) Price $ 76.95
