That Boutique-y Whisky Company are now on to Batch 2 (only 239 bottles made), so Batch 1 (only 101 bottles) has become incredibly rare and collectable. With a huge score from Jim Murray of 94.5 points, he calls it “Beautifully made and a genuine treat of a dram”.
That Boutique-y Whisky Company bottle rare whiskies from famous distilleries and label them with their own unique labels. This one features a band of pirates, some of whom may be familiar to those in the know when it comes to whisky.
The multi-award-winning (San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Wine Enthusiast and many more) Lagavulin was founded in 1816, and as one of the handful of Islay distilleries, it commands a cult following.

Average critic rating : 94.5 points
Nose: a raw nose: young, fresh, but with most of the new-makey feel knocked out of it. The peat appears to be within itself, yet threatens so much more. Taste: oh, what a sensational delivery: the texture is silk with some spicy pins sticking out of it; the sugars are forthright, with a glorious mix of manuka honey and molasses, thickened to a paste of heavily smoked grist. Finish: long, with a slow infusion of vanilla into the smoke. The spices remain playful but significant. Balance: a very unusual chance to grab a Lagavulin with kindergarten characteristics: rare to find this malt with so little oak etched into it. A real last-thing-at-night, or after a meal of steak barely troubled by the heat… Beautifully made and a genuine treat of a dram. 101 bottles.
