Comment: you would be hard pressed to find a better distillery bottled 21 year, and forget about the price...; the first ever bottling of Arran 21 Year (core bottling) is superb; if you haven't bought a bottle of this, you should, this is what 20ish year old sherried whisky should be!
"Our long awaited 21 year-old has now joined our core range of Single Malt whiskies. This limited edition release of 9,000 bottles worldwide introduces this rich and complex expression of some of the oldest whisky in our warehouses. "
