English Malt Whisky St George’s Chapter 13 Tasting Notes.
On the nose: There are Sweet and spiced notes with a gentle waft of smoke. Also roast gammon with a marmalade glaze. Warm pastry, a bit like an egg custard tart with grated nutmeg. Hints of dark chocolate, mocha, and dark cherries, toffee cream tart!
The palate reveals Creamy and slightly buttery notes of vanilla and toffee. Sweet, spicy, malty and oaky. Tropical fruits but also a hint of that 70’s classic Black Forest Gateau! Again, toffee cream tart. Long malty finish which runs from sweet to spicy and then dry.
St Georges Distillery History (English Whisky Company Ltd)
The English Whisky Co. was established as one of the first registered whisky distilling company in England.
Two others, Lakes and Cotswolds, have since gone into production (Late 2014) plus a Cornish and a Suffolk brewery produces a whiskies in batches
Their English Whisky Company objective is to produce excellent quality whisky that will be able to compete with some of the finest whiskies currently on the market. Aiming to use the very best local ingredients, giving a selection of unique and truly excellent whisky.
The county of Norfolk produces excellent malt barley exported to distillers worldwide. Plus the region enjoys a lot milder climate than Scotland helping the spirit to mature a lot faster.
The distillery produced its first ‘run’ on 12th December 2006 and it was with much excitement and with an enormous sense of achievement that the first barrel of ‘St. George’s whisky’ was filled and along with the rest of the run, was put away for 3 years to mature.
