Islay Blended Malt 27yo

This Boutique-y whisky was created using single malts from the famous whisky island of Islay in the Inner Hebrides. It's made up of 55% Bowmore, 40% Laphroaig, 5% Caol Ila and carries an age statement that tells us that the youngest component is at least 27 years old! Appropriately, the label therefore features some late 1980s graffiti. What do the acronyms mean. though? FTW is presumably '...For The Win' (as opposed to a disregard for this planet or existence), whilst FWP will be a reference to some of the more perfumed floral notes found in late '80s Bowmores...

This is a release of 88 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 Fruity and perfumed with heady orchard fruit, especially apples and pears, and light cinnamon.

Palate Soft, torn stone fruits, more apple, almond blossom, a hint of lilac and bison grass.

Finish Clean, satisfying and moreish.

Overall Fragrant Bowmore and fruity Laphroaig combine beautifully.

Reviews for Islay Blended Malt #2 27 Year Old (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)
Islay like it used to be.
FWP is about right. Huge Lavender, massive parma violet, but a delicious undercurrent of mucky ashy peat. God I wish I could afford to drink this every day.

An arsonist's whisky!
Colour: Gold Body: Medium/Full

Nose: Hmmm, definitely perfumed. Builds on you, slowly revealing layers of flavour. Softly floral, lilac, camomile, scented candles, sweet orange, grapefruit cocktail, green grape, spiced apple, spearmint (quite cooling), there's a peat fire further away, cold peat kiln. Gives you a sense of an abandoned cold warehouse.

Water: Fruitier and maybe more straightforward. Chewy orange, marzipan, Caol Ila's lemon, Bowmore's maltiness, Laphroaig's bandages.

Taste: Soft, very very sooty arrival, charcoal, cold put out fire, lots of ash, an orange slice covered in ash, grapefruit, malty, a little lemon, a small floral note, scented candle, waxy, spearmint, building spice and a puff of peat smoke into the finish.

Water: Sooty, cold, empty warehouse, blackened walls, ash, burnt Hessian, burnt down abandoned building, a burnt down flower museum?! Some oak going into the finish.

Finish: Long length. Softly fruity, the smoke fades. Orange and grapefruit. Longer and sootier with water.
