Arran Quarter Cask The Bothy Single Malt Whisky

Distillery Tasting Notes

Our Quarter Cask expression is a complex, rich and intensely fruity Single Malt, a cask strength delight and the perfect partner to our Sherry Cask Single Malt!

The Arran Single Malt selected for this cask strength expression was initially matured in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels before being transferred for secondary maturation into smaller Quarter casks also made of the finest American Oak. The process of transferring our whisky into the smaller 125 litre sized casks produces far greater contact between the whisky & oak and a faster, more intense maturation.

The end result is a full-bodied expression of Arran Single Malt combining power and finesse full of rich vanilla sweetness and bold peppery spice. Bottling at natural Cask Strength without chill-filtration or artificial colouring of any sort presents this whisky in its purest form. Small casks would have been a common feature of the Arran whisky trade in the eighteenth & nineteenth centuries as they were easier to handle and transport around the island. With our much loved Quarter Cask expression we proudly bring this tradition back to life.

Nose

Apple tart, pineapple brioche.

Palate

The citrus hallmarks of Arran welcome you, and the sweet spice of cinnamon and vanilla promises a memorable dram.

Finish

Sweetness, honey, pineapple, vanilla, coconut.
