Official tasting notes:

  • Nose: High notes of dried peel and vanilla, flaming Christmas pudding gives way to pear drops and a light dusting of cocoa powder
  • Taste: Insistent, buttery mouthfeel carrying a lorry load of vanilla, caramel and beurre noisette
  • Finish: Punchy, warm finish with great balance of the flavours

What I say

Door #1 in That Boutique-Y Whisky Company’s 2019 Advent Calendar is this 24 year old Bourbon Whiskey from an undisclosed distillery!

This post was sponsored by That Boutique-Y Whisky Company by provision of their 2019 Advent Calendar.

My tasting notes:

  • Appearance: Luscious dark gold (14/20), rare, large droplet tears leave medium-fine legs.
  • Nose: Sweet woody polish, brandy soaked Christmas pudding, caramel and butterscotch toffee, vanilla latte and mocha coffee’s, buttery Werthers original caramels covered in chocolate.
  • Taste: Spun sugar and vanilla, some woody spices, vanilla, nutmeg and a touch of clove and orange oils, caramel, dark chocolate orange, maple syrup with black pepper.
  • Finish: Medium-long, a burst of powdered baking spices subsides into orange and berry jam, charred oak wood and aniseed.


A great old Bourbon, a little woody and spicy in places but still has plenty of sweetness and masses of quite earthy vanilla essence to keep it together.

Score 86/100

Don’t take my word for it:
