ARRAN The Bothy Quarter Cask 55,2%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands-arran, 70cl, Ref: 51732
The Arran Single Malt selected for The Bothy was initially matured in first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels before being transferred for secondary maturation into smaller casks also made of the finest American oak for a minimum of 18 months. This process produces far greater contact between the whisky & oak and a faster, more intense maturation. The end result is a full-bodied expression of The Arran Malt combining with refinement, herbal and fruity notes. The final opens to saline notes, reminding its islander’s origins.

- The brand
The Isle of Arran has come a long way and their 10 year old whisky, bottled for some years now, has raised the distillery to the ranks of the great whisky producers. The particularity of Arran whisky is in its finishes, carried out in a wide variety of casks that previously contained wine (from Champagne, Margaux or Marsala) or even brandy (Cognac, calvados). The distillery is also known for producing whisky with various forgotten types of barley, as well as a series of vintage single casks, often bottled at cask strength. Produced on an island near the Scottish mainland, its style is more like Highland malt. Find out more
