Arran's The Bothy single malt has joined the Island distillery's permanent range! Matured initially in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels, this expression is finished for two years in quarter casks, which are much smaller than your average run-of-the-mill cask. Finally, it's bottled at a generous 56.2% ABV.
Nose: Honeyed malt balanced by oaky spice and a whiff of bright citrus.
Palate: Coconut and almond, followed by apricot and pineapple. Black pepper and menthol.
Finish: Lingering cherry and cinnamon on the finish.
