We have another That Boutique-y Whisky Company independent bottling of well-aged whisky from the legendary Speyside-based distillery, Macallan! This is terribly exciting news because this edition was matured for 30 years before it was bottled at 47.2% ABV. Macallan's famously small stills are the focus of the label art, as always, and that rather large curious fellow has returned with his trusty magnifying glass. Batch 16 is a release of 284 bottles. ‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ bottles single malts, single grains and bourbons from a variety of renowned distilleries as well as producing award-winning blended malts and blends. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic novel-style labels.
Nose: Rich vanilla, light florals and plenty of juicy orchard fruit, with hints of toffee, oak, brandied cherries and crystallised ginger underneath.
Palate: Caramelized peaches, apple blossom and thyme honey combine initially, with some pink grapefruit bitterness and hazelnut buttercream in support.
Finish: Refined oak, golden barley sweetness and sharp green apple notes remain.
