Day Twelve: Irish Whiskey Advent Calendar Countdown

DEC 12 – That Boutique-y Whisky Company 8 Year Old Irish Single Malt Batch 2   45.7%       Cost = ~$70 for 500 ml      Score:  B+

Nose:  nice nose, rich depth with lots going on here – caramel, spice, orchard fruits, apples

Taste:  chewy chocolate, granola bar, caramel, spice, touch of honey – mouth coating

Finish:  long-medium, spice continues on

Overall:  a nice different Irish dram, like what Boutique-y has done here – and only 8 years old; would buy a bottle if I could find it
