This is a superbly rich, malty whisky from That Boutique-y Whisky Company. It was actually almost entirely distilled at one of Speyside's most legendary distilleries, though after distillation the whisky was "spooned" (this involves adding a touch of whisky from another distillery). The reason for doing this is to prevent other companies selling a famous distillery's whisky as single malt. The graphic-novel-style illustration on the bottle depicts a large crowd of whisky lovers worshipping a giant spoon - for the art of spooning the whisky allows bottlers to sell incredible spirits from incredible distilleries for just a fraction of the price they'd be if the name of the distillery was on the bottle.There are just 210 numbered bottles in this batch.
‘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.
Nose: Rich, creamy malt notes on the nose, with a touch of cooked fruit and blossom. Very thick and inviting. A little apricot and perhaps even the faintest hint of wood smoke.
Palate: Barley malt to the core, with notes of cocoa butter and manuka honey. Baked pears with allspice, hints of sweetened latte and toasted oak develop. Some toffee too.
Finish: Oaky, toasted finish. Salt caramel and butter, sweet, milky coffee.
Overall: A beautifully malty, rich whisky with all the hallmarks of one of Speyside's best-loved distilleries...

As per the description this is mainly made up of whisky from a distillery rhyming with Chalmennie... ok not very subtle but still.The nose is light and delicate and belies this whiskies cask strength. This certainly is a richer dram than the colour and nose might suggest. Extremely well balanced on the palate and a dream of a finish.Well worth the money and to have somethign unique on the shelf.
