Macallan 25 Year Old (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)

Macallan 25yo TBWC Bottling Note

Single malt from the Macallan distillery in Speyside, and from the rich mahogany hue of this liquid, we'd say this one is very well-Sherried indeed! It was aged for 25 years before That Boutique-y Whisky Company got their mitts on it and bottled it up! A curious release - almost as curious as those curiously small stills which Macallan use to make the whisky itself.

Batch 12 is a release of 31 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 aroma of old, leather-bound books dashes to the fore, joined by a bouquet of English summer flowers. Deep oloroso sherry comes through, along with blackcurrant coulis, orange rind and exquisite, fresh apricot jam. All of it is drizzled in warm, thick molasses and huckleberry honey.

Palate: The palate is a powerhouse. There’s more rich spice than the nose, with bright, warm cinnamon, clove and galangal. It maintains its Sherried character beautifully, and juicy tangerines, nectarines and bramble fruit all burst through. There’s a smattering of salty vanilla, delicately balanced with barley and very soft oak. Occasional pangs of liquorice round it off.

Finish: Graciously long; the finish is drier than the palate, with a woodier, earthier character. Notes of cigar box and walnut temper the fruity considerably, but the spices become sweeter, like nutmeg dusted over gingerbread. A light note of black treacle lingers tastefully.

Overall: This is an exquisite dram. Refined, sophisticated, but also, importantly, barrels of fun. You’ll be oozing noble, Sherried blood. An absolute triumph. Bloody hell.
