Blended Malt #1 18 Years (TBWC)

That Boutique-y Whisky Company has a series of blended malts, numbered according to their recipe.

In this case they say it’s a teaspooned malt, a single malt to which a small amount of malt whisky from another distillery is added. Let’s dive in and check it out.



Blended Malt #1 18 Years - Batch 3 - TBWCBlended Malt No.1 18 yo
(47,3%, That Boutique-y Whisky Co. 2018, Batch #3, 1049 btl.)

Nose: bright and fruity in a slightly Irish way. Juicy pears, nectarines, unripe greengages. Floral honey, as well as honeysuckle. Meadows in spring. Fresh and attractive like a lemonade.

Mouth: simple pleasures. All on pear juice, green apples, a few grassy notes and a couple of biscuits. Touches of green tea with lemon, as well as some grapefruit zest. Hints of IPA as well.

Finish: not too long, but clean and fruity, in a green and lemony way.

Very straight, fruity and pleasant. On the green side of the fruit spectrum. Our guess would be Wardhead (teaspooned Glenfiddich). A decent choice for the summer and reasonably priced. Available from Master of Malt.

Score: 86/100
