Glentauchers 17yo TBWC Bottling Note
Batch 2 of That Boutique-y Whisky Company's Glentauchers was revealed in April 2016 when it was announced that all Boutique-y whiskies would henceforth carry age statements for greater transparency. Glentauchers distillery is known for doing most things in the traditional mechanical and manual manner, making it a great place for Chivas staff to learn their trade, but they haven't always eschewed new technologies. Back in 1910 or thereabouts Glentauchers, along with Convalmore and Lochruan experimented with 'silent malt' (malt whisky from column stills). The label of this whisky allows us to be a fly on the wall at the meeting where this was first discussed...
"Trust me Alan. In 100 years time - everyone will be making whisky this way. Pot stills are... saaaaad.
You want to upgrade."
As it turned out, it never quite caught on...
This is a release of 508 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.
