6 years old, 127 labels and an impressive portfolio of distilleries released.. We can only be talking about That Boutiquey Whisky Company, and another review from the long line up of expressions that have managed to impress me.
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 coffeeand 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..
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..
This is certainly one worth buying ! And with a price tag of £63.95 for 22yo from Master of Malt, what’s stopping you ?
