Nose
Dusty.Rubbery.Burnt tyre.Gets better in time.Light toffee.Touch of milk chocolate.
Palate
Sweet and flat.The same rubbery note again,followed by the same toffee one.
Finish
Does not hold on the tongue.
Comment
Really disappointing.Where is the fresh lively sweet character of Arran ? Has it lost its sparkle ? This whisky seems alreadytired.Or is it me ?
