Master of Malt Announces new range of Single Malts

UK-based fine spirits producer and retailer Master of Malt have announced the launch of a new range of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies.

'That Boutique-y Whisky Company' Single Malt Scotch Whiskies represent the latest independent bottling by Master of Malt and are produced from hand-selected parcels of whisky from single distilleries. This new series is produced in small batches and are released in limited quantities. The first four distilleries represented in the range are Ardbeg, Macallan, Caperdonich, and Port Ellen.

Each distillery label has been whimsically hand-illustrated and individually numbered. The labels contain comic book style representations of scenes inspired by tall tales, inside jokes, and well-renowned collectors of the whisky industry. Each bottle is 50cl and hand-dipped in black wax. The rarity of the whisky itself and the unique design of the packaging make this series highly collectible.

These whiskies are released with no age statement as the age of the whisky within each bottling will vary from batch to batch, and new batches are not created until the best quality stock becomes available. By releasing a no-age-statement whisky, That Boutique-y Whisky Company aims to focus whisky enthusiasts on the flavour of each bottling rather than the age.

Tasting notes for the four initial Whiskies are:

Ardbeg - Batch 1
Smooth with salty peat smoke, oranges, lemons, and a dollop of vanilla.

Macallan - Batch 1
Rich and sherried with notes of Christmas cake, calvados, and warm spice.

Caperdonich - Batch 1
Rhubarb with stewed grapes, pear drops, and slathering of double cream.

Port Ellen - Batch 1
Strong notes of lemon sherbet, chamois leather, and a wisp delicate peat smoke.

More batches of each of these initial distilleries as well as selections from additional distilleries will be added to the range over the coming months and years.

That Boutique-y Whisky Company's range of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies is available now from Master of Malt.
