Islay #1 - Batch 1

Mining for garlic, that popular pursuit. What is this label for That Boutique-y Whisky Company's Islay #1 single malt all about? Looks like a Coal mine, actually, and the French for garlic is... We can't say any more.

This is a release of 1,260 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 Nutty oak and subtle (coal-like, in fact) peat. Slightly meaty pine nuts with caraway, cereal and yellow fruit.

Palate A drop of water helps open this fruity, toasty whisky with tangy peaty complementing the fruit.

Finish Tasty toasted cornflakes and aromatic spices.

Reviews for Islay #1 - Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)
Delicious Islay
Absolutely delicious bottling that's got more in common with one of the 10yo cask strength Laphroaigs, than any Caol Ila I've tasted, but who knows..?!

On the nose its sweet, with buttery caramel, vanilla, some tar, big waves of delicious Islay peat smoke, a very light medicinal note, and some seaweed. Palate starts sweet, then unravels big, savoury, meaty flavours, charred/caramelised fruit, more peat and tar, some bitterness, fruit and spice to finish.

I was lucky enough to find it in the flash sale - shame the bottle is so small at the price.

Stupid price, a rather good Islay.
Yes - Caol ila - massively overpriced for 50cl of NAS - although in fairness it is cask strength & unadulterated. To my mind the only other Islay it could possibly be (by nose and taste) would be Ardbeg, except this bottle is more restrained with the peat & thankfully no TCP. A very balanced whisky - burning tar smoke, sweet gorse, ginger, yes there is some seaweed, a long rounded pungent finish. Can handle quite a lot of water. Points knocked off for the stupid price & the pungency kind of overwhelms any complexity.

Caol Ila
I get it. Very funny. Fortunately it's an absolutely delicious dram. No idea how old it is, but it's very nicely coloured. Lovely whisky.
