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
