Followers of That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s batches of Arran single malt Scotch whisky will know that the label features Boutique-y illustrator Emily Chappell stranded on a desert island. Not the most festive of scenes, perhaps, except if you look carefully at Batch 4 you’ll see that she’s actually put up her Christmas tree!
An appropriate choice for day 18 of the Whisky Advent Calendar then! There’s even some festive spice and warming rye-style notes in this batch, although it’s very much still a charming Arran, and I’m rather partial to a charming Arran…

“Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt for Arran – Batch 4 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company):
Nose: Buttered hot-cross buns with plenty of sultanas, Refresher Bars, a little bit of rye spice and a whiff of coastal air. A drop of water brings creamy vanilla to the fore.
Palate: It opens with white grape, citrus and pineapple, which is swiftly joined by some rather powerful spicy malt and cinnamon. Cake icing (and a good chunk of cake too) gives balance on the mid palate.
Finish: Quite grassy and herbaceous on the finish, with orange blossom appearing right at the end.
Overall: Flavoursome with a good bit of power behind it, this is a delightful Arran single malt.”
