St. Georges Distillery The English Whisky Co. 5 Year Old Chapter 14 Single Malt English Whisky (700ml)

$130. 00
$1560.00 Dozen
ABV: 46%
Part of EWC's small batch release, with an outturn of 1438 bottles. Distilled 2011 and bottled 2017. Matured in an x Bourbon cask.

Tasting note: [20ml sample] Wait five minutes for superb fragrances of apple, pear, vanilla and beeswax to build. On the palate, it’s fresh and lively, the orchard fruits toned down a notch. Instead there’s nuances of tea biscuits and lemon sponge cake. Crisp, lean and dry through the aftertaste, this should appeal to lovers of Clynelish. 46% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews… [Previous batch tasted] Only six years old! Boasts the complexity of a malt three times that age. Beautiful whisky: simple as! 94.5 points - Jim Murrays Whisky Bible 2018

Unripe pears, honeycomb, strawberry millefeuille, and vanilla custard. A light and pleasant expression, but it’s not the kind of complex dram that will hold your attention all night. This batch of unpeated 5 year old single malt from St. George was disgorged from just four American standard barrels, and the taste consists of waxy lemons, vanilla cream, and banana splits, with a growing caramel presence. A dry finish of light spices and sweet lemon. 82 points - whiskyadvocate.com, reviewed by: Jonny McCormick (Spring 2015)
