Customer Rating
Arran's The Bothy was aged initially in first-fill bourbon barrels before being finished for 18 months in American oak quarter casks. Bottled at natural cask strength, this limited edition is sweet and spicy with notes of tropical fruit.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Notes

    Colour: Old gold with straw yellow lights; welcoming as a fire’s warm glow through bothy windows.

    Nose: A warm and comforting aroma greets the nose. Sandalwood spice and smells of the outdoors; sweet malty barley and damp oak. Aromas of waxy lemons, melting cane sugar and a hint of cocoa promise intense and complex flavours to follow.

    Palate: A luscious, sweet mouthfeel adheres to the palate as a kick of red chilli heat arrives and starts to warm. Distillery character shines as fresh pineapple and green apples with stalks attached come to the fore. Toasted brioche and vanilla ice cream
    give a round quality to this dram.

    Finish: A floral note at the start of a finish which lingers on the palate as tangy citrus notes develop to make the mouth water, bringing the flavour full circle; inciting another sweet sip.

    This whisky should have sold out long ago.Personally I love whisky aged in quarter casks, can't add to the tasting notes, ticks alot of boxes for me, needs water though.
