    The English Sherry Cask - Single Cask Release, 56.5% alc. Original bottling, St. George's Distillery. Ageing: sherry cask

    Nose: Fruity with dried cranberries and raspberries, also sultanas. Reminds me of shortbread with baked fruit. I also find mild spices, including pepper and some ginger.

    Palate: Very unusual. First of all, I have to emphasize that I don't notice the alcohol at all. A very creamy start, the whisky builds up gently and then becomes sweeter and sweeter. Grapes, pomace, olives, then the whisky changes back towards the dried fruits of the nose. In addition, a slight ginger spiciness and green pepper.

    Finish: medium long, the spices have disappeared again, but suddenly a lot of sweet cookie dough.

    Conclusion: Interesting story. The whisky always bends in a different direction and leaves me a little perplexed, but at the same time I am enthusiastic about such specimens. i like him 84/100 points (2022)

    Not at all bad - a nice surprise, and my favourite from this distillery to date.
    • Nose
      85 85
      The highlight of the dram - light, sweet, creamy sherry and white pepper.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Rather bland at first, improves with water. It's clearly young, but a pleasantly sour gristiness offsets the nose nicely.
    • Finish
      81 81
      Medium, clean, with grape juice and a touch of Gaviscon(!), slight bitterness at the last.
