TBWC Irish Single Malt #1

Bottler: That Boutique-y Whisky Company
Age: 24 years old
ABV: 46.8%
More Info: WhiskyBase

A mystery Eurovision entry from those folks at TBWC. If you’re not familiar with “My Lovely Horse”, allow the YouTube video to enlighten you…

Oh, you’ll have a dram, won’t you? Go on. Go on, go on, go on, go on, go on…

Nose: Pineapple Turkish delight in dusty icing sugar. Bruised apples, salty toffee, whipped cream. Absolutely delicious.

Palate: Mango syrup, peach melba, Werther’s Original toffees with a gentle gingerbread tingle.

Finish: Apple skin, with a touch of Barley grist and vanilla.

Feck.

This is a stunning whiskey. Soft, delicate, fruity and sublime on the nose and tongue. Reminds me of the Midleton Very Rare I tried last year…

I could sip this happily all Summer, if all 264 bottles hadn’t already sold out.

Samples are still available via Master of Malt for £13.67 a piece.
