It''s got a nice peatiness on the nose with some white wine notes. The palate opens with strong peat followed by a fruity sweetness leading into a long peated finish. 

 

As with most Port Charlotte, the peat is very sharp and not necesarilly integrated with the other flavors, but it's bold and fun.

n:  Dark fruits.  Sweet.  Oak and caramel.  Great nose.

 

p:  The sherry is almost cloying.  Antique furniture.  Sweet palate that last for only a split second, then quickly fades away to dissapointing nothingness.

The whiskey was first aged for twelve years in ex-bourbon barrels before being finished in ex-White Port barrels from the Carcavelos region of Portugal, which is famous for producing beautifully light and fragrant, fruity flavors.

n: golden straw, peach, hint of spearmint gum. Dry earth, hard honey candy, and clean linens. 

t: floral (dry white rose petal), chewy malt, and dried grapefruit. Still gentle overall (almost subtle), but with a dense flavor throughout.  Complexity shows in the rich finish and the ABV% really makes this a good one.  If you're not an Irish whiskey fan, this might change your mind.  Blind, it would be difficult for me to ID this as Irish Whiskey.  [B, almost B+]

n: floral, white sugar frosting, lemon wax. Lemon glazed donut.

t: sweet; predominantly white powdered sugar, torched merengue tips, and toasted coconut.  Middle is vanilla cream, key lime pie, and paper pulp. This is almost like an American corn whiskey but more coconut-sweet. Overall pleasant but very much on the deserty/sweet side. Tannic oak and cereal grain flavours appear at the end. Each batch does seem to improve.  [almost B]

Girvan 52 Year Old That Boutique-y Whisky Company

  Price: $277 Availability: Overseas Specialty
"It's the second batch of Girvan single grain Scotch whisky bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company! Aged for 52 years before being bottled by the Boutique-y bunch, this one packs a punch of maple syrup, dark chocolate and juicy melon notes! Time travel and rotovaps are the theme of the label once again - a brilliant combination, we're sure you'll agree...

Batch 2 is a release of 102 bottles." - MoM

Not fully balanced and the varnish note was a bit strong. Not a fan.

  Price: N/A Availability: Overseas Specialty
"Here's the third batch of Lagavulin single malt independently bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company. It's a 10 year old whisky from the Isle of Islay, and it boasts a hearty helping of BBQ smoke notes.

Now, if we asked you "What do pirates smoke?", you'd all know to say "CigARRRRs!", right? Well, what about if we asked you "What do pirates drink?" It's not rum, it's Smoky-Cokeys - a tasty combination of Lagavulin and Coke! Or at least, that's what the rather familiar-looking pirates on this label like to drinks...

Batch 3 is a release of 365 bottles." - MoM

N: Smoked meat, vanilla, spice, peat, apple juice and grilled fruit

 

P: Smoked meat, vanilla, spice, graham, orchard fruit, honey and malt

 

F: Long -> Smoked meat, char, fruit and  iodine

 

This was tied for my favorite of the even with the Port Ellen 33. Odd to say they were that close but I liked them both equally though for differnet reasons.

Port Ellen 33 Year Old That Boutique-y Whisky Company

  Age: N/A Type: Scotch
  Vintage: N/A Subtype: Single Malt
  ABV: 47.50 % Region: Islay
  Price: $1078 Availability: Overseas Specialty

"It's the sixth batch of Port Ellen independently bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company, and the first to boast an age statement on its label - this right here is a 33 year old single malt from the legendary closed Islay distillery! Also on the label is Jon Beach of Fiddler's Whisky Bar, looking wistfully out to sea with his trusty filling pipe by his side. Who's that on the shore? Why, it's Ben and Jake carrying out some iPed traditions. But wait, isn't that Jake taking the SS Malt out for a spin on the calm seas too?!

 

Batch 6 is a release of 250 bottles." - MoM

N: Inky smoke, saline, toffee, iodine, char, buttercream frosting and a bit of raspberry

 

P: ink, smoke, salt, toffee, iodine, char, caramel, buttercream and oil

 

F: Long -> Smoke, salt, burnt toast, toffee

 

It was pretty good, but not a stellar malt by any means. I've had so many better PEs.
