That Boutique-y Whisky Company (distilled at Aberfeldy, Batch 1), 47%

Price: $105 Issue: Winter 2013 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Independent releases of the Perthshire single malt Aberfeldy are relatively rare, and the first batch of That Boutique-y Whisky Company's no age statement Aberfeldy runs to 155 numbered bottles. The nose features coconut ice, vanilla, malt, candied peel, and ginger. Good mouthfeel, with more malt, ginger-nut biscuits, icing sugar, and milk chocolate. The finish is drying, with oak and black pepper.£65/500 ml
