Slyrs 3 Years Old Batch 3

Slyrs 3 Years Old Batch 3 That Boutique-Y Whisky Company

1. What they say

That Boutique-y Whisky Company is back with another batch of Bavarian single malt from Slyrs! Matured in a cask that was given an intense charring (dubbed ‘crocodile toast’, as it ends up looking like crocodile skin) for three years, this expression boasts some wonderful caramel and brown sugar notes. Plus, the label features Oktoberfest, and an crocodile wearing sunglasses, so frankly, it’s all good stuff here.

Batch 3 is a release of 395 bottles.

2. Official tasting notes

  • Nose: Peaches in syrup, vanilla sponge, toasted brown sugar atop flaky pastries.
