ROBERT BURNS ISLE OF ARRAN DISTILLERY LIMITED EDITION 2001 SINGLE ISLAND MALT WHISKY In polished wooden display box and commemorative scroll Dated 25th January 2001. This malt comes from Isle of Arran Distillers - it is five years old and, I believe, matured in both fresh and refill bourbon barrels. Now, how does the Arran Malt get to just slap the name and picture of Scotland's favourite son on their bottle, when no-one else can? They were invited in 2001 by the World Burns Federation to become a patron and so received this endorsement. Even though Robbie Burns may never have stepped onto the Isle of Arran, the distillery is the closest one geographically to Ayrshire, his place of birth. The Robert Burns brand also extends to a blend, also crafted by Arran Distillers, untried by me. The colour is very pale yellow, extremely light in colour as befits its youth. On the nose, it is fresh and exciting: ginger, herbs (sage, oregano), lemon, ripe pears, very clean and crisp. A drop of water brings out more malt, herbs and some new floral notes. We have more fruits on the palate (green apples and pears), very malty, citrusy and honeyed. Again, very light and sweet, and spicier with a drop of water, which is welcome. The finish is fairly long - but not deep. Rather, it is very spicy and bright. This is a very summery whisky, lovely (and easy) to drink but not terribly challenging. Again, it made for a great starter to an evening of many fantastic drams and would make a great starter single malt for those just starting to explore this world.
