Glenlivet 27 Year Old (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)

Glenlivet 27yo TBWC Bottling Note

27 year old single malt from the legendary Glenlivet distillery - the first Glenlivet bottling from That Boutique-y Whisky Company! The label of this incredible whisky references the distillery's founder George Smith and his unpopularity after becoming one of the first to acquire a License for Distillation after the Excise Act of 1823. He doesn't seem too worried.

Batch 1 is a release of 111 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: The nose is rich with oak, winter spice, cinnamon and cloves, before a concoction of fudge, peanut brittle and vanilla tablet rise. Wine-soaked petals, honeyed sultanas and apple blossom linger below, before a touch of foam banana sweetness and gentle wisps of smoke appear.

Palate: Nutty at first, with layers of oily walnut complemented by ground nutmeg and chewy, tannic oak. Full and rich notes of stewed rhubarb and apples emerge with confidence, as does a glaze of Manuka honey. A pinch of fennel brings a clean and elegant spice.

Finish: Lightly oily and long, there’s a lingering note of liquorice root.

Overall: As devastatingly delicious as it is distinctive, this Glenlivet seems almost tailor-made for an Emerald cocktail (A Manhattan with a dash of orange/Angostura bitters).

Reviews for Glenlivet 27 Year Old (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)
Not horrible but very disappointing
I’m sorry to say I found this very disappointing I blind taste tested it against two much younger Glenlivets and I have to say I preferred both of them. It is actually the oldest whisky i have drunk. It doesn’t come close to my 25 year old Glenfarclas or my 24 year old that boutique whisky Bourbon.
I guess to my palate anyway it proves that aged isn’t always best. I received it as a dram as part of a fairly luxurious tasting set and at 35 quid just for the sample I certainly won’t buy a full bottle.
