That Boutique-y Whisky Company Irish Single Malt 1991, 46.7%

Price: $156 Issue: Winter 2016 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

The Boutique-y incursion into Irish whiskey leads with this splendid vintage. Rejoice in this fresh, clean nose with sweet barley, lemon zest, lime pith, vanilla frosting, and early summer florals cut with a slight saltiness. This flavorsome whiskey has thick, juicy oils, and progresses from an early citrus dominance to reveal ginger, pepper, and ground almond. Water magnifies the citrus to great effect.£125
