Rank #13, 92 Points - Whisky Advocate Top 20 Of 2021
"Scotland has hundreds of islands, many of them familiar to scotch lovers, but the one known as Arran has flown beneath the radar. This sleeper single malt has a sublime aroma of bread dough that barely hints at the lively flavors that await in the glass, which include freshly shelled almonds, sweet berries, and clover honey, plus a toasty finish with a lovely (if not overly long) chocolate note. A balanced, elegant, and flavorful whisky that’s lively on the palate, and a true bargain at only $50." —David Savona

"Abundant tangy citrus with lemon curd, lime peel and a touch of green apple. Herbal with creamy vanilla fudge and a dry spiced finish."
