The Macallan / That Boutique-y Whisky Company

Macallan 29yr (That Boutique-y Whisky Company) Review

Macallan 29yr (That Boutique-y Whisky Company)I know a lot of people who would be jumping over obstacles for a chance to try this but for me Macallan has never really been one of those distilleries i've got on with very well at all so this is one i'm not as looking forward to as the others.

I think it's the sherry element, i wouldn't say sulphur like others, but definitely a rubbery note that normally comes in Macallan that i just don't get on with, but lets see how this is and whether i can get on with it.

I'm still really unsure of Macallan despite this being very drinkable, i just think it's not to my palate, with a bit of leather and fruit it's definitely tasty though.

Sold out at Master of Malt but keep an eye on the site for more new releases coming soon.

Thanks to That Boutique-y Whisky Company for including me on this Birthday Tweet Tasting.

dusty rooms, old well worn but looked after leather, plum sauce, tomato plant, a little soft nectarine too


tangy orange peel and pith, soor plooms, a hint of new leather, spiced pomegranate seeds


spiced plums, a touch sour and spices coming in
