Taster   Martine Nouet
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 ?
