Islay Blended Malt 23yo Bottling Note

That Boutique-y Whisky Company have set their eyes on the Isle of Islay with their first batch of Islay Blended Malt #1, made exclusively with malt whiskies from the island much-loved by whisky enthusiasts. It's made up of 60% Ardbeg, 35% Laphroaig, 5% Bowmore and carries an age statement that tells us that the youngest component is at least 23 years old! The graphic novel-style label gives us an insight into the history of a particular massive rock and (most importantly) a patch of precious, precious peat.

This is a release of 419 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: White chocolate Jazzies, marsh samphire and just a touch of caper as it opens up, violets and Jelly Babies, salted caramel, coriander seed.

Palate: Fizzy oak, yoghurt coated raisins, candied peels, toasty spices and a hint of stem ginger.

Finish: Smoky oak spice. Comforting and moreish.

Overall: Coastal deliciousness with toasty, smoky sweetness at its core.

Islay Blended Malt #1 23 Year Old (That Boutique-y Whisky Company) Reviews

Truly Outstanding

This is an excellent dram. Well balanced, dark and complex.

So Old-Skool

This is a frankly ridiculous bargain. I've already bought 2 cases - tell me where else you can find any one of the whiskies in this blend at almost 25 years of age AT ALL - let alone at the equivalent of under £120 for a 70cl bottle and AT CASK STRENGTH!!! This is a simply utterly delicious whisky - with all the old-world swagger of something distilled back in the 1990s (or maybe 1980s - who knows). Buy all you can whilst there's any at all left.

9/10

I'm guessing
40% ardbeg
20% bruichladdich
20% laphoraig
20% Caol Ila
0% lagavulin
Definitely amazing, the age and blend makes for an interesting dram. Better then any of those whiskies by themselves. A drop of water adds 20 more years to the taste. Smoke on the nose, ginger smoke on the palate, and a long dry smoky finish.
overall 90/100 made for ardbeg fans who are daring enough to make it past distillery bottling.

Meh

It's ok but there's a slightly odd nose and aftertaste. Much prefer a single malt ardbeg or laphroaig etc.

Back to the Feis!

One whiff of this and I'm immediately transported back to Feis Ile 2015 - sitting on the dock at Ardbeg Distillery with a cask sample of an early '90s Ardbeg taken from the warehouse. Ardbeg like this (and the blend is indeed a full 60% Ardbeg) simply don't exist anymore in the market. The price point for a whisky of this quality incorporating only whiskies from Islay is frankly incredible. More please.
