TASTING NOTE: Independent distiller Isle of Arran, patron of the World Burns Federation, is the only whisky-maker to use the poet's image. Though he spent no time on Arran and had no connection with this producer, founded in the 1990s, he was born not far away, in Ayrshire on the west coast. There's a pronounced note of pear here, followed by vanilla, honey-lemon tea and soda bread. A delicate dram for early evening.
