James E. Pepper 4 Year Old – Ale Cask Finish (That Boutique-y Whisky Company) 500ml


The third batch of rye whiskey from James E. Pepper which has been bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company. Just like batch 1 and 2, this whiskey has enjoyed a finishing period in different types of cask, though this one is a departure from sherry casks – it was finished in ale casks (as pointed out by James E. Pepper owner Amir Peay on the label).

Batch 3 is a release of 356 bottles.

‘That Boutique-y Whisky Company’ bottles single malts, single grains and bourbons from a variety of renowned distilleries as well as producing award-winning blended malts and blends. These whiskies are adorned with cultish graphic novel-style labels.

Nose: Fudge, toasted barley and floral honey combine with malty vanilla notes and dense brown sugar. Buttery corn and chewy caramel emerge among some sawdust.

Palate: Oak spice, plenty of creamy malt notes and dark toffee lead. A little bit of orange zest adds a flash of citrus to the mid-palate.

Finish: Peppercorn and more malt linger for a while.

Overall: The ale cask adds an extra dimension, without distracting from the classic James E. Pepper character.
