We were greeted by Euan Mitchell, Director of Arran Single Malt Distillery....Arran is a small island, which is virtually uninhabited, boasting a population of 5000, if I remember correctly, which is probably the population of Bangsar and Damansara Heights put together.
Next up was the 14 Year, which was so popular that in that short time we were there, other patrons in the restaurant had bought up almost the entire stock that was there. An elegant drink by any standard, with notes of dried fruits and vanilla. The finish is a lingering creamy sweetness, and paired with the luxurious platter of Thai starter,
The Bothy Quarter Cask, bottled at Cask strength, is highly unique in that it is initially matured in first fill ex Bourbon Barrels before transfer secondary maturation in smaller American oak casks. It is a limited edition Arran Malt which pays homage to the use of small casks, which is reminiscent of the way it was back in the 18th & 19th Century, when clearly none of us were born yet.
A old gold color, with sandalwood spice on the nose, and pineapple and apple on the palate, culminating in a floral finish.
The sequel to that is the Machrie Moor Cask strength, which well, basically is a stronger version of the "normal" one.
In summary ...ta dah, the curtain call of the STARS...
