Cameronbridge Grain Distillery is the largest in Scotland, but you don’t often find its malts available. Now, That Boutique-y Whisky Company have bottled a 39 Year Old single cask.
That Boutique-y Whisky Company
Independent bottlers That Boutique-y Whisky Company have been bringing malts to the masses since their founding. They want to set themselves apart as a brand that is challenging how whisky is made and the wonderful things you can do with it.
That all starts with their labels, which are fun and quirky, each one unique and drawn in a comic book style. They capture something essential about each brand in their labels.
Inside the bottle is even more exciting. That Boutique-y Whisky Company have curated bottlings from most distilleries in and Scotland and a fair few from around the world. They have even created some of their own blends, which are well worth taking a look at.
This expression is an exciting bottling from Cameronbridge, which despite being the biggest distillery in Scotland is not one of the more well known distilleries. That’s because it’s a grain distillery, with most of its produce going into blends for Diageo.
Bottle cost: £166.63
This 39 Year Old Single Grain Scotch is really something to behold.
The nose starts with aromas of cinnamon, all spice and mint. It is herbal and earthy. Sweetness takes over in the form of toffee and fudge, with big notes of vanilla and oak wood. Malted grain also appear and add a lovely depth.
The palate is smooth and mellow, with lots of caramel and honey. Orchard notes and oak wood abound. Cinnamon and vanilla go perfectly together and are very sweet. The spices are warming and gentle. Peaches, apricots and raisins add a chewy texture.
The finish is long and ends on vanilla and cream, wrapping up a wonderful grain whisky.
That Boutique-y Whisky Company have brought us some excellent drams and this is definitely one of the best. You’ll be hooked on grain whisky once you’ve had this.
