What they say:
This is That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s fourth batch of unpeated Tobermory single malt. You can tell it’s unpeated because the Alan Partridge character called Pete has a red line through his face as a bunch of torches attached to a bicycle wheel and some car hazards provide lighting and pyrotechnics.
This is a release of 162 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.
Malted milk, ripe pear, bath salts and rubbed mint leaves.
Sweet malt and more fragrant fruit (peaches and plums) and oak.
Rusks and Mr. Kipling Chocolate Chip Cake Bars.
What I say:
Dram#5 from The Dram Team Incredible Indies tasting set is a 21 year old Tobermory expression bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company
Antique gold (8/20), medium-small tears leave long fine legs
Fruity, apple, pear, peach, nectarine, in a polished ancient oak wood fruit bowl, coconut cream, vanilla
Biscuit malt, coconut / nice biscuits, apple peels, salty; with water, a mass of chocolate and honey
Medium-long, salted apple peels
Delicious in lots of ways, great nose, great palate – shame the two don’t match but that doesn’t detract any from the drinking experience
Don’t take my word for it:
