Arran The Bothy Quarter Cask Batch #1
An Arran matured in smaller quarter casks. These smaller casks have more wood contact creating more flavour. Bottled in September 2015. One of 12,000 bottles.
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 American oak casks for a minimum of 18 months. This process created greater contact between the Whisky and the oak and a much more intense maturation. The end result is a full-bodied expression of the Arran Malt, combing power and finesse full of rich vanilla sweetness and bold peppery spice. Bottling at natural cask strength without chill-filtration or artificial colouring presents this Whisky in its purest form.
