THE ENGLISH WHISKY CO. Chapter 11 - Heavily Peated 46%
Single Malt, England / East England, 70cl, Ref: 16422
The English Whisky Chapter 11 exists in two versions: this one at 46% and another bottled at cask strength. This bottling, which is non chill-filtered, is a blend of three casks of peated whisky distilled in March 2008. Soft, spicy and peaty, it is a version that will appeal to fans of the Islay malts and whiskies aged in bourbon casks.

- Nose : Soft and creamy with notes of ginger biscuits, aniseed and white pepper. Develops into notes of vanilla, Vosges boiled sweets and Italian grappa.
- Palate : Creamy with notes of malted barley followed by black pepper and peat. Ginger and citrus fruit (lemon and lime) precede fairly dry notes of peat and exotic fruit (pineapple and mango).
- The brand
Founded in 2006, Saint-Georges was the first whisky distillery to be put back into operation in England since 1898. Although production of whisky had ceased in England 100 years previously, the barley grown in Norfolk and the water from Breckland are exceptionally well-suited to the production of whisky. All the whiskies distilled at Saint-Georges benefit from the expert eye of its master distiller Iain Henderson – the former director of Laphroaig and a notable contributor to the success of numerous other distilleries. Each “Chapter” corresponds to a stage in its production.
