  1. TsiAI scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Smell: fermented beans, sweet sauce, some smoke, similar to jam and barbecue sweet sauce, should be blended with a certain percentage of sherry barrels. Soil, charcoal, honey, candied fruit, some dried apricots in the later period 86/100
    Taste: berry jam, candied fruit, some sour taste, peat taste is quite obvious, there are some salt, Fanta soda, wood, honey, red pear water.
    Body: medium, astringent, must be oily. Ending rhyme: medium length, dry wood, bitterness and astringency of citrus peel
    Overall: 84.5/100. Its peat is similar to coal ash, which is very different from Airey's. It is more fruity, refreshing and soft. The smell is better than the mouth, but the alcohol feels very weak, like a 10-year-old wine, which is more rounded than an 8-year-old wine.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

    The second batch of English single malt from the English Whisky Co. independently bottled by That Boutique-y Whisky Company has arrived! This time, the whisky was drawn from bourbon and sweet Sauternes casks, resulting in an intriguing and delicious flavour profile. The dragon that St. George is fighting on the label looks to have added to its collection of bottles, and also seems to be roasting a classic caramel sweetie. Dragons clearly have good taste.

    Nose: There’s bonfire smoke and sweet green apple, with cherry soda, rancio and bruised pears. Polished oak is there throughout, and there’s a suggestion of cinnamon sticks and candy cane menthol.

    Palate: The crisp apple sweetness is there again, with sour cherry boiled sweets and Big Red cinnamon drink. Thick ash is powerful, but doesn’t spoil notes of oak tannins, more of that rancio and furniture polish.

    Finish: Warm, sweet and prolonged. Rich barley and meaty smoke linger.

    Overall: A powerful dram that is rounded enough to not let the smokiness dominate.

    Malt Maniacs Award 2018, Non Plus Ultra Daily Dram category
    "A whisky with a fresh nose, aromatic, intense, floral, slightly smoky, with some bitter and aromatic herbs. On the palate, it is fruity, intense, mellow, round, floral, on exotic fruits, some aromatic herbs, peat smoke, other stewed fruits, sugary flavours and light aromatic herbs. Well balanced. Very good and complex."

    Average. Some off-notes of sulphur and margarine. Don't get me wrong; I'm partial to a bit of sulphur in a whisky, but not like this. Forgettable and thin-bodied.

      A hint of butter peat. Wet ash, pears. Vanilla toffee.

      Butter peat! Or margarine peat. Oily, but not in a good way. Hint of sulphur. Young malt. Vanilla toffee and pears, once more.
    • Finish
      75 75
      Short and disappointing. Some bitterness at the very end.

    N: Spirit driven oily peat - Caol Ila-esque peat with a copper vibe, accompanied by leeks, onions and a Scotch egg. 
    T: Elements of Islay have bottled this style many times over. Barley distillate, beautifully dry yet succulent. Perfect actually.
    F: Don’t add too much water or it will cancel itself out.
    C: A malt with lovely form. The best malt I’ve had from the EWC by a long stretch.Scores a B
