Burns Night: Traditional vs. Untraditional

Robert Burns

So. Burns Night. That’s next week. Burns Suppers date back to 1801, with the first one being held by friends of the celebrated Scottish poet Robert Burns. They’ve continued ever since, with people around the world enjoying haggis, poetry and whisky on the 25th of January. When something happens for over 200 years, sometimes people think about trying to do something a bit untraditional - like the year that Monkey Shoulder hosted a Burns night celebrating Montgomery Burns and Jake wrote a blog post mostly about a completely different TV show character.

Tasting Ledaig 42 Year Old Dùsgadh 1972

Ledaig 42 Dusgadh

Crikey it's been busy around here lately! Father's Day is upon us and we also have imminent releases coming out the wazoo! Sometimes you simply have to drop everything though, for a short while at least, because, just occasionally, a very special whisky demands that.

A 42 year old Ledaig? Yeah, that'll certainly do it. This 1972 vintage is the oldest ever release of the peated single malt from Tobermory distillery, and Burn Stewart informs us that the earliest possible date they could release another Ledaig that's at least 40 years old would be in 2036! Special, this most definitely is.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company is back. 4 more belters in time for Christmas.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company Strathmill, Ledaig, Ben Nevis and Macduff

42. I’ll save you the trouble of counting.

Turns out that it’s not only the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything, but is also the number of releases from That Boutique-y Whisky Company to date.

I’m pleased to say that numbers 39-42 are as fabulous as those that preceded them, and am delighted to reveal that we’ve got yet another 4 releases to come before the end of the year (including time-travelling barmen, and an absolute belter of an Islay that’s something of an exclusive).
