That Boutique-y Whisky Company


Posted 15 December 2019

Day 14 of the 2019 Boutique-y Whisky Advent calendar offers up batch 2 of Irish Single Malt #1 13 year old. We reviewed this back in 2018 so are presenting an updated version of that original post for you today. Batch 2 batch consists of 2,200 bottles delivered at 48.4% ABV. They’re available for £58.95 from Master of Malt (a little over a pound cheaper than this time last year). Whilst the distillery this whiskey originates from is undisclosed - being an Irish single malt, the choices, in terms of the style and age, limit this to either Cooley or Bushmills. I’d certainly err towards the latter.

Irish whiskey is experiencing something of renaissance. There are over thirty new distilleries in various stages of planning or construction across the Emerald Isle. It’s hard to imagine that in the mid-1980’s there was only two distilleries in operation – Bushmills in the north and Midleton in the south. The rebirth can be traced back to the late 80’s with the refitting of Cooley distillery and it’s move to double distillation rather than the triple pot still distillation practiced at Bushmills. The fruits of this endeavour have taken a fair few years to truly flourish, but by 2014 the number of operating distilleries had risen to eight. By 2016 it had nearly doubled again to seventeen.

I’m as guilty as the next person. Despite an undying faith that I’ll get round to drinking it all ‘someday’, I really should come round to the reality that I own more whisky than I’m ever going to consume. Stockpiling is something of an occupational hazard when you both write about whisky and work for a distillery – but nevertheless the sheer volume of ‘drinkers’ I own makes a mockery of the moniker. It’s not going to happen. And I’m far from alone.
