The Smugglers’ Series Vol. I ‘The Illicit Stills’ pays homage to Arran's illicit whisky production during the 18th and 19th centuries. This is the first edition of the trilogy released in 2015 This whisky was carefully crafted with both peated and unpeated spirits and matured in a combination of port pipes, sherry hogsheads, and traditional whisky barrels. Despite its relatively heavy nature, it balances out its peatiness with pleasant fruity notes. One of only 8700 released, it’s most certainly worth a try.

Tasting Notes

Dominant wood aroma alongside sweet fruit shades and citrus notes

About Glenbotal

The idea of Glenbotal came to us naturally: as whisky lovers, we were always on a watch out for new experiences in the whisky world. But when we were interested in trying something new to stretch our pallettes, buying the whole bottle was too much of a commitment for us. What if we don’t like it? What would we do with the rest of the bottle?

That’s why we created Glenbotal and became our own first customers. We buy bottles from auctions, ballots, and private collections and share them in a small circle of friends and people who can appreciate a good dram.
