James McArthur

Français | English
James MacArthur was established in 1982 with the aim of selecting whiskies from Scottish Distilleries which were either not very well known or had ceased to operate and bottling them at cask strength, thus introducing whisky drinkers to distilleries they had never heard of.
This policy has been continued, with top quality single barrel bottlings from a wide selection of distilleries. Whiskies are currently bottled at ages ranging from 10 years to 35 years and at both cask strength and 43%vol. These are fine examples of the quality and variety available from each whisky producing region and the Company has won several awards for its bottlings, both internationally and in the UK. The most recent were Gold awards from the Whisky Magazines Independent Bottlers Challenge 2006.
Cask strength whiskies are bottled at natural strength and without the whisky having been chill-filtered or having colour added. The 43% bottlings, although reduced in strength, are similarly non chill-filtered and have no added colour.
The aim is to offer a product which is as natural as possible and which retains its original characteristics and flavours. Many of their whiskies have been matured in either bourbon barrels or sherry hogsheads and this adds a certain sweetness to the whisky, as well as colour. A drop of spring water added to a malt will open it up and improve both the aroma and the flavour.
Appreciation of a good malt whisky on both the nose and the palate, takes time and not a little practice, but it is time well spent. What greater pleasure than a dram of good malt whisky. Even if a malt whisky is not necessary appreciated by everybody, the quality of the bottlings is guaranted.

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
