Balcones 2 Year Old Single Malt Batch 1 (That Boutique-y Malt Company) (51.1% abv)

“Very exciting times – this right here is the very first batch of Balcones single malt bottled from That Boutique-y Malt Company. The fabulous malt spirit was distilled by Balcones in Texas and then Brimstone-cask-matured for two years. The label is truly something to behold, depicting your every day metal concert, courtesy of The Brimstone Cowboys in the fiery depths of Hades. The Hell ‘n’ Back Tour looks pretty good, if a bit scary – that large demon sitting on a throne of skulls is rather unsettling, y’know…”  Master of Malt

Nose: Loads of sweet, juicy fruits rise from the glass, namely plums, with a buttery toffee backbone, dark chocolate croissant and blackberry jam with a very faint, delicate smoky undertone.

Palate: Even more of those juicy fruity notes and sweet, slightly burnt crème brûlée, with a generous helping of peppery spice and lots of drying oak among the baking spices.

Finish: Dusty cocoa, sweet fruits and tannic oak, with a savoury smoky finish among lingering syrupy cherry fruit sweetness.

Macduff 10 Year Old Batch 8(That Boutique-y Whisky Company) (50.2% abv) 

An independent bottling of 10 year old single malt Scotch whisky from the Macduff distillery, bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company! There’s Macduff on the label – the character from that play that you’re not allowed to say the name of so instead you tell people to break their legs. We think we’ve got that right. Anyway, he’s on the label and he’s enjoying a Duff Beer and Macduff boilermaker before heading off to do… Something.

Nose: Immediate caramel sweetness and melted milk chocolate fade into gentle mineral notes, pencil sharpenings, sultanas and distinct maritime aromas of sea water.

Palate: Fruity notes of fresh apples alongside dried raisins, apricot and sultanas, with a dash more chocolate.

Finish: Herby notes contrast the sweetness, followed by a sprinkle of allspice over porridge.
