What they say
A 5 year old Swiss single malt from the lovely Langatun, independently bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company. On the label, you’ll see a map, that seems to be tracking… Something. Perhaps it’s a hint towards what sort of cask the whisky slumbered in…?
Batch 3 is a release of 635 bottles.
Official tasting notes:
Nose: Immediately grassy and honeyed, with a real vegetal vibe. There’s a burnt rubber quality too, along with pineapple, mega-ripe banana, a whisper of cinnamon, and a dash of black pepper.
Palate: The tropical fruit fiesta continues, wrapped up in an oily, creamy mouthfeel. There are some more delicate florals that come through, along with a breakfast cereal graininess. Raisins, pecans, dried banana slices and some gentle red fruits add interest.
Finish: Long and oily, rounding off with a pleasingly sweet spice warmth.
What I say
My first sampling of Langatun whisky from the Langatun distillery in Switzerland. This was bottled by That Boutique-Y Whisky Company at 5 years old as Batch #3.
My tasting notes:
- Appearance: Chardonnay gold (5/20), Medium tears, long, fine legs.
- Nose: Dessert-like, sweet and vanillic, vanilla ice cream, banana split dessert, custard cream biscuits, apple pie with cinnamon, hints of floral rose and elderflower.
- Taste: Neutral on the palate, fruit juice, green, vegetal and spiced, like clove, pineapple and dry oak wood, peppery spices, black pepper, cinnamon, allspice, lychee, banana a little caramelised.
- Finish: Medium-long, spiced wood.
A touch woody but with some lovely sweet and floral notes, also a little bit vegetal on the palate.
