That Boutique-y Advent Calendar 2020
Strathmill 21 Year Old – Batch 6 – 47.7% vol. £89.95
On the 9th day of Christmas Boutique-y gave to me…a sample from yet another distillery near me!! I’m sooo lucky.
I was sent this Boutique-y Whisky Company Advent Calendar in order to sample its delights, and to reveal my thoughts to you dear reader!! Will they all delight my palate? Time will certainly tell.
Strathmill Distillery is located in Keith, Banffshire. A lovely little amble past the Isla Cooperage brings you to it. If you’re able to go for a walk you find the old railway line on the top bank.
The label shows an image of Goldilocks deciding which porridge was just right, the distillery used to be a porridge oats mill.
Lovely artwork by the very clever Emily Chappell once again.
Sweet as honey…lovely spices and delicious vanilla. Smells a bit like driving past Walkers biscuits…
Lovely smooth and quite full on the palate. Vanilla again and some delicious fruit coming through. Think raisins… it’s quite thick. Just the way I like it.
The finish is sweet and long with a little kick of heat…if it was porridge you’d blow on it and make it just right!!
The advent calendars were available from Master of Malt plenty of delicious Boutique-y Whisky to tempt your palate too!!
