About this deal

That Boutique-y Whisky Company bottles exclusive single malts, grains and bourbons from renowned distilleries, and this release (with a limited run of just 420 bottles) is no exception. The liquid inside is as distinctive as the bottle branding, delivering bags of vanilla butterscotch, citrus, dried fruit and cinnamon. Despite the higher ABV, it’s deliciously smooth; so much so, we’d swerve the ice entirely and savour as is. Nose: Full of fruit. Apricots, lemon (especially the zest) and prunes (a.k.a. the rebranded “dried plums). It closes with mild hard cheese and…is that printer ink? Yes. Yes, it is.

Sexton Single Malt Irish Whiskey : The Whisky Exchange

Throughout the 19th century, Irish whiskey reigned supreme over its Scottish rival, before falling out of favour. While Scotch may still wear the crown today, the pioneering efforts of Emerald Isle distilleries have led to a recent resurgence in popularity. I know I should like this. And I would like to say that I send only goodwill toward the sisterhood. But it’s like when I’m in barre class: Some women are really just not my type. This isn’t terrible, but it’s definitely not my favorite. I wanted to give it a 2, my co-taster said 3, so I’ll split the difference.Barrel ageing imparts a touch of caramel or butterscotch into the flavour, as well as woody notes, so seek out aged whiskeys if you particularly enjoy those qualities.

Blended Irish whiskey: Combines at least two of these styles and accounts for the majority of mainstream Irish whiskeys (think Jameson and Bushmills).
