Insider knowledge: Arran 2000 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon & MacPhail) whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Arran 2000 - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon & MacPhail) whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
If some whiskies are referred to as "sherry bombs", this one is a citrus bomb. There are undertones of sherbert, vanilla and tropical fruits to this whisky but the main aroma on the nose and flavour on the palate is lemon zest, lemon juice and lemons. I have had several Arran's and I have rated them very highly but I consider this one the best.
