‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ is a company who bottle single malts, single grains and bourbons from various distilleries around the world, as well as producing award-winning blended malts and blends.
This interesting 27 year old single grain expression from the Cameronbridge Distillery is an affordable, yet older-than-most whisky for ~£70.
On the Nose
Maybe over-indulgence during the Christmas period brought this straight to mind, but instantly the familiar notes of Cadburys Crunchie bar (honeycomb & chocolate for those not in the UK), with some canned peaches, hints of oak dust & cinnamon spice.
On the palate
Instant bitter orange peel, with a freshly chopped basil undertone and a lingering sticky toffee pudding taste left in the mouth.
Water instantly made this dram less harsh, toning down the alcohol kick and bringing out the bitter orange and herb notes. I'd recommend a drop or two of water for this whisky!
An interesting dram, and one that has more notes and complexity the more you drink / the longer you leave it in the glass.
I really like what 'That Boutique-y Whisky Company' are doing, and would love to try more of their whiskies soon!
Would I buy again?
For a 50cl bottle, current prices of ~£70 seems reasonable for some whisky which has sat in a cask for 27 years. When I think about that, at time of writing, I was 6 years old when this was distilled. That blows my mind, and I'd expect a bottle of aged whisky at cask strength like this to cost easily £200-300!
That was a long way or saying yes...
