Insider knowledge: Arran 100 Proof whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Arran 100 Proof whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Weighty. Superb delivery of malted barley and toffee-apple.
Palate: Offers sugared barley, toffee and cooked fruit. Hints of latte as it climaxes.
Finish: Barley still abounds and the coffee notes carry well as the tail dries with oak.
