The 4th edition of the Arran Bothy, this picked up the Best Island Whisky at the 2019 World Whiskies Awards. The Arran Single Malt selected for The Bothy was 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 & oak and a faster, more intense maturation.
The end result is a full-bodied expression of The Arran Malt combining power and finesse full of rich vanilla sweetness and bold peppery spice. Bottling at natural Cask Strength for added weight and complexity.
