And the Winner of the Bowmore Glasstorm Glasses is…

by Michael Orson     28. November 2013 12:38

Parrot

On Thursday last week, I posted a full review for the soon-to-be-released £16,000 Bowmore 50 Year Old, here. Any of you who read my account of the Bowmore evening at the Park Lane Hilton will know it was a jolly good whisky. To précis my thoughts, if you’ve recently saved the money for a Fiat Doblo 1.6 MPV, I urge you instead to buy a fixie bike, and spend the difference on the new Bowmore 50. I think that’s the sensible choice.

That night, during the unveiling of the record-breaking single malt, speakers talked us through the manufacture of each aspect of the finished package: the whisky, the presentation case and the decanter. First up was Bowmore Manager, Eddie MacAffer; followed by acclaimed carpenter woodsmith, Peter Toaig; and finally Nichola Burns and Brodie Nairn from Glasstorm.

More Winners of the Premium Whisky Advent Calendar Competition!

by Sam Smith     21. November 2013 12:00

Whisky Advent Calendar Cat

You might be wondering where all the winners of our Premium Whisky Advent Calendar competition competitions are. With a calendar being given away every week in November to lucky winners who purchased Tasting Sets, there should be more winners! We do apologise. With Christmas on its way, we’ve been a bit snowed under getting all sorts of exciting stuff prepared for the holiday season. (Keep your eyes peeled!)

New Boutique-y Whiskies; Allt-á-Bhainne, Glen Keith, and Miltonduff

by Ben Ellefsen     1. October 2013 13:11

That Boutique-y Whisky Company Miltonduff, Glen Keith and Allt-a-Bhainne

Well it’s certainly been quite a while since we put out any new Boutique-y whiskies. Over 3 months in fact. Erm. Sorry about that. Will try and be more hyperactive in the future. Promise.

After a clutch of slightly more esoteric ideas in the last set of releases, we’re coming firmly back to the ‘whisky world’ with these three, each one featuring some of our compadres from the geeky, obsessive, and at times slightly worrying world we all inhabit.

John Walker & Sons Voyager Competition

by Jake Mountain     20. June 2013 14:37

John Walker and Sons Voyager

Ever fancied attending a glamorous party aboard a luxurious 1920s-style yacht? How about a star-studded shindig on an opulent 157 foot vessel with live entertainment thrown in? (I’ll give you a clue: the answer is “Yes”. Possibly “Hell yes”.)

Well... HERE’S YOUR CHANCE!!!

That’s right, we’ve come up with the goods again and one lucky person will be winning a pair of tickets to attend the The Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve Celebration in London on 17th July 2013 aboard the John Walker & Sons Voyager. That’s Ka-Blamo!

Dramboree Competition Winners!

Dog in People Clothes

Last week we ran a Competition to win a pair of tickets to Dramboree, a brand new whisky weekend, which is to be held in Aberfeldy from 5th – 7th of July this year.

To enter, we asked you to come up with the best picture of a dog in people clothes you could possibly find and then post it on our Facebook page! (Oh, and to Like our Facebook page too, but I’m sure you’ve all already done that... Right?)

The entries came flooding in! Whole packs of them, by the kennel-load. A veritable litter of entries. Although I left the judging to MoM’s resident poochie experts, I can now reveal the winners (we felt it was only fair to give out a couple of prizes for some honourable mentions too)...

North British, Dailuaine, Glen Moray, Tomintoul and Auchroisk. New Whisky from That Boutique-y Whisky Company.

North British, Dailuaine, Auchroisk, Tomintoul, Glen Moray That Boutique-y Whisky Company

Would you believe it's been over a quarter of a year since the last batch of releases from That Boutique-y Whisky Company? Amazing. It's almost like we had other stuff on.

Well – all that 'being about the place' nonsense is behind us now (for a bit), and due to a freshly sustained ankle injury (The other one for those of you paying attention. Gah) I'm at liberty to take a few moments to tell you about the new releases which sit before me today.

Feis Ile 2013: The Islay Whisky Roundup!

by Jake Mountain     6. June 2013 09:34

Feis Ile 2013 map

It's fair to say that Feis Ile aka That Boutique-y Whisky Company On Tour 2013 was a rip-roaring success! Enjoyment was had by all, 3 fantastic Competitions were run and entered into with rabid enthusiasm. And nobody died, either! Great success.

From our Distillery Dog Peaty getting lost (and getting found again) to our Message in a Bottle Islay Treasure Hunt, to loads of you literally flagging us down with the signal, you (yes, you) all made this our best Fèis Ìle yet! We’re already hard at work planning next year’s shenannigans...

Feis Ile 2013: Day 5 (Bowmore) - Message in Bottle Winners & Flaming Bows

by Jake Mountain     30. May 2013 19:25

Bart back to the future

It seems that everywhere we've gone this week people have been talking about one thing in particular: the mysterious bottles that have washed up on the shores of Islay containing messages written by "Doc" Emmett L. Brown way back in 1859!

This was, as you may know unless you've been living under a rock (you do read all my blogs with avid enthusiasm, right?), part of our third competition for Feis Ile 2013. Everybody who found a bottle was told to meet at the clock tower at Laphroaig distillery at 12 noon on Wednesday 29th May 2013 - their prize for doing so was a full bottle of That Boutique-y Whisky Company's brand new Caol Ila (worth £54.95) AND the chance to feature on our next cultish comic book-style label!

Feis Ile - Islay Competition 2: Peaty, The Lost Distillery Dog

by Jake Mountain     21. May 2013 13:20

Peaty distillery dog

Following on from Competition 1, it’s time to offer a little more detail on the second competition we’re running whilst on Islay. Let me introduce you to ‘Peaty’, our bold and feisty little friend. He’s also a toy dog.

Peaty’s hero is Shortie, the Ardbeg distillery dog, but he loves all Islay whisky equally and when we take him to visit the distilleries he often doesn’t want to leave! If you find him on your travels between 24th May and 2nd June, we’re offering a reward for his safe return to the Malt Mobile – a full 50cl bottle of our brand new That Boutique-y Whisky Company Caol Ila, worth £54.95! One good deed deserves another, after all.

The Glenlivet Alpha: It's Started!

by Jake Mountain     8. May 2013 10:00

The Glenlivet Alpha

You may have already heard the exciting news that The Glenlivet have launched a brand new expression without revealing any tasting notes or cask details – even the bottle is blacked out so that you can’t see the whisky until you first pour some out into your chosen glass! It’s a totally blind release, the first of its kind and it will take a chap of steel to unravel its mysteries.

The Glenlivet Alpha is available now from Master of Malt, and with only 3,350 available worldwide (600 in the UK), make sure to grab one before it’s too late – we expect these to sell at a colossal velocity. Once you have your bottle you can begin The Glenlivet’s interactive sensory journey to discover its secrets, testing yourself or learning more about Single Malt Scotch Whisky along the way.
