Arran The Bothy - Quarter Cask (70cl, 55.7%)


This Arran was matured in ex-bourbon barrels (various vintages) and finished for 18 months in American oak quarter casks (50 litres) for greater interaction. Bothy (bothy: in Scotland a small hut or cottage) harks back to the 18th and 19th centuries on the Isle of Arran when smaller casks were favoured for logistical reasons, whilst delivering gorgeous vanilla and spice flavours.

It's also bottled at a natural cask strength of 55.7% abv without chill-filtration or artificial colouring. 12,000 bottles have been released in 2015.  A great Arran bottling.

Arran distillery is a whisky distillery in Lochranza, Scotland, the only distillery on the Isle of Arran. In 1994 Arran Distillers was founded by Harold Currie, former director of Chivas with the intention of building a distillery on Arran. During the construction of the distillery, a pair of Golden Eagles built their nest on a cliff near the distillery; since Golden Eagles are a protected species, construction of the distillery was temporarily halted. The distillery opened in 1995.
