Quarter Cask 'The Bothy'
Since it entered our range as a limited edition four years ago, Quarter Cask 'The Bothy' has become a huge favourite among Arran Whisky friends worldwide. You told us what you thought of it and we listened. We are delighted to present it in a new pack as a permanent part of our core range, available all year round.
Quarter Cask 'The Bothy' is a cask strength powerhouse of tropical fruit notes and spiced vanilla. It is aged in smaller casks to intensify the maturation process and add an extra dimension of spice.
Matured for 7 years in Bourbon Barrels and then for a further 2 years in 125L Quarter Casks. It is distilled and matured at Lochranza, non-chill filtered, and has an entirely natural colour. Put simply, it is in a class of its own.
Bottled at cask strength, 56.2% ABV.
Colour - Bright gold.
Nose - Lemon peel, candy floss and a hint of cocoa.
Palate - Fresh tropical notes with pineapple, green apples and vanilla. A slight touch of chilli gives a tantalising heat.
Finish - Aromatic, fruity and satisfying. The depth of sweetness is backed up by the strength of the spiced oak, creating a lasting impression.
