Another rare bottle for the ever increasing number of Arran collectors out there, the Robert Burns World Federation whisky. Presented in a nice wooden box with one of his poems printed on a scroll. This was bottled to commemorate Isle of Arran Distillery becoming a Patron of the Robert Burns World Federation Limited on 25th January 2001. Although Robbert Burns may never have stepped onto the Isle of Arran, the distillery is the closest one geographically to the place of his birth, Ayrshire. A relative youngster - the distillery started production on the 17th of August 1995 Arran has quickly won an army of fans that have been drawn to the quality of the whisky produced in the shadow of the nesting site of a pair of golden eagles. Nose: Fresh herbs and crisp, clean ginger and fruity aromas. Palate: More fruit, apples and pears and citrusy lemon and orange. Then sweet honey and some gentle spice. Finish: The finish is long, with light spice and more zesty notes.
