Todays review is actually a blend that is a rather impressive 22 yo and is batch 3 from the blend #2 series..

Having tried all sorts to get the whiskies included within this blend from those tight lipped folk at Boutiquey headquarters including bribes but they  are not giving anything up..

This blend #2 22yo from That Boutiquey Whisky Company is batch 3 and has been bottled at 41.8% abv, this has an outturn of 1650 bottles.

Nose.. Rich vanilla and caramel notes are instantly evident with honey, chocolate and candied orange notes mingling nicely with coffee and a soft hint of dried fruits.

Palate.. Soft spices lead into a delicious sweetness that was so evident on the nose. Vanilla, caramel, soft oak and a touch of coconut are the main notes here with a subtle hint of dried fruits, chocolate and sugared almonds.

Finish.. Drying with a lingering sweetness.

Thoughts.. An extremely interesting blend with a real sweetness that is so reminiscent of old grains..

Boasting an age statement of 22 years this blend has to be packed with some really well aged grains and when you sit down and really Analyse this whisky part by part you can certainly appreciate what might be in the make up of such a superb tasting blend.. Elegance and sophistication are just two words that fall out of the mouth when asked to describe this, along with seductive which is certainly what this whisky is !!

This blend is so typical of the quality that this company turns out that is is becoming ever harder to decide which expressions to buy..
