An evening with remarkable whiskies. That Boutique-y Whisky Company is an independent bottler which offers stunning whiskies from world-renowned brands and distilleries. This evening I had the pleasure to try 5 of them, online with other whisky enthusiasts. The foreplay towards this evening was tough, very tough.
This was an amazing evening and with great hosts. As ever, we all had a lot of fun while nosing and tasting the fantastic five.
Aberfeldy 12 Years, it has been a while since I had a glass of this whisky. Lucky for you I wrote down the tasting notes for myself to share with the world. Aberfeldy has a great range of whisky and this 12 year old lad is one of them.
I wrote down in the tasting notes:
“While pouring the whisky in the Glencairn glass, you could smell the tropics. The birds playing in the garden, looking for food and chirping with joy. That is how I felt, chirping with joy”.
Saskatoon, SK, February 23, 2017 – LB Distillers is pleased and excited to announce the release of their first malt whiskies. Release number 1 is a Lucky Bastard Straight Malted Rye Whisky and release number 2 is a Lucky Bastard Single Malt Whisky.
The whiskies will be available exclusively at LB Distillers and exclusively to our customers who entered the Lucky Bastard Whisky Lottery.
Given the high anticipation and demand for the very limited supply of our whisky, we thought it best to have customers enter an e-mail lottery allowing the winners a chance to purchase a bottle without having to stand outside in line during a Saskatchewan winter.

Hyde, an Irish whiskey named after an Irish poet and the man who served as the first President of Ireland from 1938 to 1945,Douglas Hyde.
The name Hyde reminded me of the 70’s show though. Steven to be precise, the one with the curls and fantastic sense of humor who lives down in the basement. More a beer man I think, but maybe he had a weak spot for whiskey. Irish I hope.
September 2015 marks the launch of Scapa Skiren, an artisanal single malt forged by the elements of Orkney; a remote island of natural contrasts.
