Macallan - Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)

Macallan Boutique-y #1 Bottling Note

This whisky is from the eminent Speyside distillery of Macallan. Macallan are well-regarded for producing exceptional and award-winning whisky - so it was hardly a surprise that ‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ snapped up some of this esteemed whisky and bottled it for your delectation.

‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ bottles single malts, single grains, bourbons, blended malts and blends from a variety of renowned distilleries. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic-novel-style labels.

This label features Macallan’s Curiously Small Stills*, as observed by a handsome Giant. This is batch 1 - a release of 312 bottles.

*They’re not small. They’re massive. Just look at them. Massive. Durr.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Christmas cake leading to powerful, almost calvados-like apple, then there is a wealth of dried grape-based fruits, developing into notes of apple tart sprinkled with cinnamon. Finally baked apple and a rich sherry aroma settle in.

Palate: A really soft body that blossoms in the mouth - with notes of stewing sultanas and prunes with the sweet but slightly acidic touch of brambly apple.

Finish: A rush of baked apple scattered with demerara sugar and a big chunk of toffee followed by lingering vanilla essence.

Overall: Really well developed notes of dried fruit and apple on the nose leading to a beautifully soft mouth-feel, followed by an assertive finish. This Macallan demonstrates great balance; each flavour is bold, but at no point compromises the structure of whisky.

Macallan - Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company) Reviews

Not worth buying

Not very good. Seemed too have lost much of it's identity after being watered down to only 41%abv. Not complex on the nose or palate - and not overly tastey in general. I gave it a 73.

Worth buying

Tasted the 3cl sample last night and I liked it.
I am a big Macallan 18yr sherry drinker and this was on par with it.
Do I crack open the bottle now?
The label is quite cool.

Buy. This. Now.

Think Macallan 25, a little more sherry influence, at 1/6 the price. Yup.

Being a big Sherry head, this dram didn't disappoint in any way shape or form. Good job I got a couple of bottles, because this is just as good if not better than alot of the macallan sherries!
