Quarter Cask The Bothy
|—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 and 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.
