That Boutique-y Whisky Company is a new generation bottler of single malt whisky, single grains, blended malts and blends, launched by UK-based fine spirits producer and retailer, Master of Malt. Colourful, hand illustrated labels often incorporate whisky industry 'in-jokes'.

The second batch of Cambus single grain Scotch whisky is the first to carry an age statement (which will be the norm for all subsequent Boutique-y releases). Since batch 1, a robin redbreast has entered the snowy scene by the Cambus iron bridge, giving this label a festive feel.

Diageo-owned Cambus has been marketed at various ages, as well as a no-age-statement. In 2011, the distilling equipment was removed and the operation was converted to a warehouse and cooperage. Tall column stills were used in place of copper pot stills to create this whisky, the former resulting in a light, clean and fruity spirit. Sometimes maligned by malt snobs, older grain whiskies can be quite exceptional (Jim Murray gave the previous batch from Boutique-y a whopping 94 points!) Given that Diageo's 2016 ODB of Cambus was launched for well over $1000 in Australia, this indie expression seems a very reasonable proposition. The bottlers say to expect "White pepper and spiced oak from the outset, followed by waves of butter, waxy citrus and chocolate pralines." 319 bottles.

Very limited stocks.

Please note: slight cracks in the bottle's wax seal are not uncommon. This is not a packaging fault.
