An age statement English single malt whisky from That Boutique-y Whisky Company, distilled at St. George’s distillery in Norfolk. I’ve had quite a few and never really bothered to publish my notes.
English Whisky Co. 5 yo
(49,5%, That Boutique-y Whisky Company 2016, 964 btl.)
Nose: light, clean spirit. Apples and pears, oranges, hints of vanilla biscuits. Soft, sweet grassy touches. A faint hint of darker, dusty, slighly charred oak in the background.
Mouth: not much fruits here, except for hints of sweet yellow apples. A good dose of peppery notes. Plenty of vanilla cream. Quite robust, there’s not much happening and it feels a little overweight in a way.
Finish: medium, on sweet barley and drying hay.
Quite a boring whisky, I’m afraid, although there are no faults as such. Still it’s better than their official releases, so it may be a good chance to get to know them. Around € 50 from Master of Malt.
