Robert Burns Single Malt – Isle of Arran Distilleries – 23 October 2012

Once again, I have the privilege of starting another expression of the PWS.  Having spotted this bottle on the LCBO website, I found that it had become and endangered species.  With the enjoyment that I got out of the last bottle of it that I purchased for the society in March of 2010, I decided to put a bottle on my shelf for special occasion.  I certainly deemed that the start of a new expression was just that sort of occasion.  Once again Arran Distilleries delivered, and I would have to bet that their new release of Robert Burns Single Malt will be one to pick up as it becomes available.

Notes from the Bottle: Bottled under the Robert Burns label, this version of the Arran Single Malt is wonderfully aromatic with hints of apple, vanilla and citrus fruits.  Light and crisp but ever so smooth and gentle, the whisky dances on the palate.  This is the perfect dram with which to toast the Bard

Notes from the Isle of Arran Distillery

Colour: Brass gold, Sauterns

Nose: Fresh green apples, pear drops, cider, hints of vanilla

Taste: Apples and sherbet, lemon meringue pie, vanilla

Finish: Light and crisp – but ever so smooth and gentle – it dances on the tongue. An excellent aperitif with soft apple and gentle spiciness – a whisky calvados!
