Day 5 - Arran Quarter Cask, Cask Strength

Published by Ben on Dec 04, 2020

Day 5

On the fifth day of whisky, my Advent Calendar gave to me this limited-edition single malt from the Isle of Arran on the west of Scotland. Whilst the bottle has received a facelift with brand new packaging coming out in 2019, the distillery’s integrity remains the same as can be seen from the many awards they won in 2018, one of which was a Gold Medal for their other Quarter Cask whisky – ‘The Bothy.’ Matured in first-fill ex-bourbon barrels for seven years, this delightful dram is then finished in American oak casks for two years. Bottled at cask strength, an eye-watering 56.2% ABV, this full-bodied winter-warmer has notes of vanilla, cinnamon, spiced fruit and finished with a black pepper kick.
