This, Arran Quarter Cask “The Bothy”; cask-strength single malt Scotch whisky is matured in a unique way. First aged in ex-bourbon barrels for seven years, it receives a secondary maturation in much smaller quarter casks for an additional two years. This increased contact with the wood results in a full-bodied and intensely flavored whisky.

Description

Taste

Upon the first sip, you might be greeted by a wave of citrusy sweetness, perhaps reminiscent of orange or grapefruit zest. This can be followed by a burst of tropical fruits like pineapple and mango, mingling with hints of apple and pear. As the whisky settles on the tongue, deeper notes emerge. Look for a warming honeyed sweetness, balanced by hints of vanilla and coconut. A touch of peppery spice might tickle the back of your throat, adding complexity to the overall flavor profile.

Aroma

The influence of the ex-bourbon barrels comes through in the nose, offering hints of vanilla, caramel, and maybe even a touch of baking spice like cinnamon or nutmeg. The secondary maturation in quarter casks adds another layer of complexity, with potential aromas of fresh fruits like apples and pears, as well as a hint of woodiness and toasted oak.

Finish

The finish of Arran Quarter Cask “The Bothy” is described as medium-length, meaning the flavors linger on the palate for a pleasant amount of time after swallowing. The fruity sweetness usually fades first, leaving behind a warming sensation of spice and oak.
