That Boutique-y Whisky Company (distilled at Invergordon) 25 year old, 49.8%

Price: $49 Issue: Fall 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

More typical grain whisky territory here, with a nose of cornflakes, fresh cream, cut grass, filaments of orange peel, and a curiously dull pepper note. Spice, sweetness, and citrus fight for dominance. Spice wins with a K.O. on sweetness and lays the citrus out cold on the canvas. Creamy chocolate notes tarnished with hot pepper on the finish, though coffee-pot flavors emerge with a dash of water.
