    Isle of Arran 20 yo 1998/2018 (51.4%, Caora, sherry hogshead, Caora N°5, cask #849, 120 bottles) 
    Colour: gold. Nose: entirely on candy sugar, manuka honey, maple syrup, and 'just slightly burnt' cakes. There's nothing here to dismiss. With water: brilliant, maple syrup, from a small farm, Quebec, organic and all that. I know some who make pancakes in the morning just as an excuse to have maple syrup (guilty as charged). Mouth (neat): it's pure maple syrup, really! That's great because at WF we love maple syrup, especially on foie gras—there, a suggestion. With water: has this ex-sherry Arran been finished in a maple syrup cask? Come on, it's just us here, tell us the truth... Finish: I can sense a Quebecois accent coming through... Comments: it's true, you have to be fond of maple syrup, tabernak.
