What they say

A whiskey lovely enough to shower with sugar lumps and regularly take to the horse dentist – yes, it’s the second batch of That Boutique-y Whisky Company’s Irish Single Malt #3! Spectacular 13 year old single malt from an undisclosed Irish distillery, boasting oodles of fruit notes. It really is lovely, lovely, lovely whiskey.

Official tasting notes:

  • Nose: Seriously fruity. Lots of creamy apricot, raspberry, strawberry, and apple. Floral and grassy, freshly cut hay notes, Shredded Wheat breakfast cereal.
  • Palate: Apple and apricot again, along with sweet spices: cinnamon, a touch of nutmeg and even some root ginger. Some darker fruits creep in too: plums and figs. Slightly hoppy. Creamy, mouth-filling texture.
  • Finish: More apricot and lots of wood spices.
  • Overall: An abundantly fruity Irish single malt!

What I say

Sampled during the 2018 #WhiskyAdvent tweet tasting with @TheWhiskyWire and Drinks By The Dram.

The third batch of Irish Single Malt 13 Year Old bottled by TBWC, comes in at 46.8%.

My tasting notes:

  • Appearance: White wine gold (5/20), medium tears and medium, loose legs.
  • Nose: Fresh, sweet & fruity, zesty citrus lemon, lime & grapefruit, vanilla, cereal, lemon drizzle cake, icing sugar, apple juice, biscuit, neutral cereals, grassy hay.
  • Taste: Medium-full bodied and a touch oily; Apple danish or crumble with rapsberry ripple ice-cream, apple sauce, refined sugar, cereal grain, dried grass, a little zesty grapefruit, vanilla custard, lemon bon bons and sherbet.
  • Finish: Long, sweet & sour, oak wood becomes drying.

Overall

Plenty of body, packed full of fresh fruit and cereals, just a touch to sour and oaky on the finish for me. Quite a summery dram.

Score 83/100
