ARRAN The Bothy Quarter Cask Of 53,2%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands-arran, 70cl, Ref: 51732A

Quantity limited to 1 bottle(s) by client.

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.

Tasting note

  • Nose : riche, fin. des fruits exotiques (banane, ananas), des agrumes (pamplemousse, orange, mandarine) et des épices douces (cardamome, cannelle) côtoient dans un premier temps des notes de musc et de fleurs capiteuses (iris, jacinthe). Il devient au fur et à mesure malté et très finement réglissé. Des fruits secs (datte, figue) arrivent ensuite en point d’orgue. Son substrat végétal est d’une grande fraîcheur (orge en cours de maltage, fleur d’oranger).
  • Palate : vive, presque tranchante. De concrète d’iris en foin coupé, de zestes d’agrumes en poivre gris et de fève de cacao en réglisse noire, son attaque déploie de multiples facettes. Sans concession, le milieu de bouche joue à fond la carte des amers pour rafraîchir le palais. Elle se prolonge sur la racine de gentiane et sur la fleur de courgette.
  • Overall : longue, complètement intégrée à la bouche, elle ajoute de fines notes salines presque iodées. L’orge maltée prend au fur et à mesure une dimension quasi mystique (encens). Des fruits à chair blanche (poire, pêche) la font enfin évoluer vers un registre plus pulpeux. La rétro olfaction révèle de nombreuses plantes aromatiques (tilleul, sauge, verveine) et des fleurs capiteuses (lavande). Avec ses notes vanillées et crémeuses, le verre vide affiche beaucoup de sérénité.

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
