That Boutique-y Whisky Company has crafted trade-mark labels and fine contents. One of our Mumbai Whisky Ladies picked this particularly bottle up some time ago and we’ve been patiently waiting for th right opportunity.
On the label you can see Thierry Bénitah (La Maison du Whisky CEO and son of its founder, Georges Bénitah) in the 1980s, surrounded by classic whisky bottlings and wearing a particularly snappy turtleneck…
Glentauchers 20 year (Boutique-y Whisky Company) Batch 4, 46.9% bottled for La Maison du Whisky with 327 bottles
- Nose – Hazelnut cream, wood, almond, also some ripe fruits, maple syrup, oodles and oodles of butterscotch, a bit of menthol, green almond
- Palate – A real tingle and oomph! A bit bitter, some sweet spice, caramel fudge and nougut, with a bit of tart sour sauce, berries
- Finish – Spice like white pepper
Some loved this one. Others found the blend so approachable that following with this single malt was a bit of a jolt.
- Nose: Fresh and floral with hints of violet and honey. Stewed berries with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Butterscotch.
- Palate: Roasted chestnuts and black pepper. Apricot jam, quince and a whisper of cinnamon.
- Finish: Sodabread with salted butter, floral malt once again, cumin and dried raspberries.
Our core focus was a trio with a wee ‘appetizer’ blend:
- Ballentine’s 17 year Glentauchers 40%
- Balvenie 14 year Caribbean Cask 43% (from Taiwan)
- Talisker 18 year 45.8%
