Blended Malt #1 - Batch 1 Bottling Note

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.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

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...

Blended Malt #1 - Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company) Reviews

Good - but not exceptional

Being only 500ml, without an age statement, yet more than the price of a full bottle of the 12 year single barrel... I was expecting something interesting. Yes - it's unmistakably Balvenie - which I very much like. However, it's really no different (and perhaps even a bit less complex) than several of the 12 year single barrel bottlings I've tried. So it's decent but not particularly value for money. I'd guess it to be around 8-10 years old. Nice to see an independent Balvenie, but it's not one I would buy again.

Great Stuff

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.
