Arran The Bothy Quarter Cask Whisky Batch 2 Tasting Notes;
Duel size cask maturation allows greater contact between the whisky and the oak and a more intense maturation. That results in a full bodied expression of the Arran malt combining the power and finesse of rich vanilla sweetness and bold peppery spice.
Batch bottled at natural cask strength without colourants and chill-filtering.
