    Isle of Arran 20 yo 1996/2017 (51.4%, Caora, bourbon hogshead, Caora N°2, cask #916, 239 bottles) 
    The Caora labels can't really be called 'baroque', can they? Colour: straw. Nose: it's far more austere, without actually being austere (I understand what I mean), leaning more towards fresh or dried herbs, hay, barley, wheat bran... We quite like that as well. With water: a nice freshness reminiscent of Rosebank. Mouth (neat): there's a greater presence of citrus on the palate, approaching the 2001 by the Flying Belgians (S., usually it's the Dutchmen that are flying). With water: ah, also very good, but without the immaculate and evident side of the Belgian Arran. Finish: long, between green pepper, apple peel, and lemon liqueur. Comments: nothing to criticise, it's very, very good.
