That Boutique-y Whisky Company (distilled at Speyside) 17 year old, 53.4%

Price: $52 Issue: Fall 2017 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

Few single malt whiskies from the Speyside Distillery make it to the U.S. This noses like a gammon joint glazed with sliced orange and a side order of sugar mice. Hesitantly, a sip brings relief with dark chocolate, stewed rhubarb, strained raspberry juices, walnut, and burnt bakery goods. Dry finish with remnants of cocoa. Worth experimenting with water, as lovely candied peel and golden syrup notes peek out.
