Carsebridge 52 Year Old - Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)

Carsebridge 52yo #1 TBWC Bottling Note

A 52 year old single grain Scotch whisky from a distillery that closed back in 1983! Good it is, too. The label, meanwhile, features Tristan Stephenson and Thomas Aske (the chaps behind the Worship Street Whistling Shop) in their new London whisky bar, Black Rock. As well as plenty of delicious whiskies, organised by flavour with a simple price system, the place features an table made from a European oak tree trunk that's 18 feet long! These guys are breaking down the barriers to getting into whisky, which is awesome.

What's more, as stated on the back label you can take your empty bottle down to Black Rock and exchange it for a secret off-menu cocktail...

This is a release of 252 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.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Rounded and creamy with floral notes (iris) integrated with soft fudge and buttery pastry. Further depth is offered by some fruit in syrup.

Palate More of the same deliciousness - creamy, perhaps even richer, with fresh vanilla pods, thick caramel and cedar.

Finish Extremely long. Was that whisky or caramel sauce? Superb.

Reviews for Carsebridge 52 Year Old - Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)
An American's opinion...
Nose: light, somewhat delicate...sweet caramel, rummy sugarcane, coconut (Hawaiian tropic suntan lotion?) , vanilla, hint of cinnamon, Play-doh (yes!), some gherkin. Neat: deceptively complex...more coconut, unidentifiable floral (nasturtium nectar?), some unburnt match head but hard to pinpoint as it morphs very quickly from one flavor to the next. Water: No water drop at most! Finish: shortish but good, a tiny bit of bitterness lingers but it works--leaves you desiring another sip, if only to take another guess at identifying more notes...moreish for sure. Overall a very beguiling and delicious whisky...I only wish the finish were longer.
