Westport 21 Year Old Batch 1 That Boutique-y Whisky Company Description
Now this one takes a little deciphering that we are more than happy to help with. This Westport 21 Year Old is a blended malt, and arrives at 49.7% abv. It’s a vatting of two sherry butts from October 1997 and is the first batch of Westport from That Boutique-y Whisky Company. Now that’s out of the way, lend us your ear for a little bit of juicy gossip.
This is a teaspooned malt, which isn’t a recognised classification so ‘blended malt’ must do. It is often said in some circles that a Glenmorangie influence can be tasted, with a teaspoon of Glen Moray occasionally detected. But that’s all rumours and hearsay, that we can’t technically weigh in on. We’ll leave you to your own devices for figuring out who features on the curtain-raising label!
Nose: seductively enticing, stewed orchard fruits, fresh orange juice, mint, beeswax.
Palate: full bodied, fruity, raisins, candied sweets.
Finish: tropical fruits, long, lingering.
