  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    Fairly quotidian offering, but an easy drinker. Some heat from the wood, but overall a reasonable session dram.

    The English Whisky 2013 - 2019, 5 Years, Small Batch Release, 46% alc. Original bottling, St. George's Distillery. Aging: Virgin Oak (new oak barrels)

    Nose: Pure apple aromas. Apple juice, apple sweets, freshly peeled apples. Behind it is a light mix of shortbread and caramel, simple and clear. Also delicate vanilla and some pine resin.

    Palate: tasty, mild, slightly sweet. Again with apple flavors and light pastries. Apple juice, apple pie, some fudge and pear. Also slightly bitter oak, a hint of pepper and ginger. All in all very soft and entertaining.
    Finish: Short, creamy, soft. Rounds off the previous impressions.

    Conclusion: Mild, fruity and gentle. Otherwise, Virgin Oak is not my thing, but here it is well portioned. 82/100 points (2022)

  4. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Bright, festive, "childish" whisky, with a funny aftertaste of "Duchess" soda, which evokes a feeling of nostalgia.
    • Nose
      It welcomes you with tints of Duchess lollipops, apple chupa-chups and fruit caramel. In the depths, the tones of custard and fresh baked goods are strolling.
    • Taste
      Creamy caramel, Duchess soda, apple lollipops.
    • Finish
      Medium duration, again the main theme is "Duchess" and apple cakes, followed by pleasant malt tones, spices and delicate tannins.
