The success of Arran's "The Bothy", their first main venture into quarter cask maturation has led them to confirm with us yesterday that there will be more batches to come next year.
A limited Edition of only 12 000 bottles worldwide, it was recently voted one of the best drams of 2015 by the UK's Royal Mile Whiskies, a world leading independent retailer. It was also given a Top Score by Dave Broom, in a review for Whisky Magazine. Describing it as "A Cracker", he gave it a score of 8.2 out of 10, knocking the Dalmore 30 year old into second place.
For me and Bart at The Whisky Shop NZ it has become one of our favourite drams. As you can imagine we are exceedingly busy at this time of the year plus we are still renovating our new house in Taupo.
The Bothy has proved the perfect dram to sip at the end of a long day sitting out on our half built deck, watching the sunset. Fruity and spicy, the robustness and salty sweetness of this whisky just seems to sum up the start of summer and the promise of things to come.
To celebrate it's success we have decided to give it an equally celebratory special price.
