    An interesting whisky with an edge, if only for the high strength. It needs water, and then it gets quite intriguing, although it never becomes a stand out whisky.
    • Nose
      The Sauternes cask has certainly left its mark. Rich, although not very complex, with apricots and peaches. Traces of honey and vanilla. A bit of malted barley in the background.
    • Taste
      Lemons and peaches at first, but then the alcohol hits. Lots of chili peppers. Adding water is not a luxury and makes for a creamy mouthfeel. The fruit returns (oranges) but there's also a bitterness that's less pleasant. Some light spices now, mainly cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Long and dry with soft spices and some light fruitiness.

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    English Whisky Co. 7 yo 2007/2015 (63.5%, Blackadder, Raw Cask, Sauternes cask, cask #804, 224 bottles) I find that more than great that the very smart people at Blackadder manage to bottle unusual ‘world’ malts such as Amrut or, for that matter, the English St George. I believe this one was still distilled by Mister Iain ‘Laphroaig’ Henderson! Unless he was already at Edradour’s. Colour: gold. Nose: yeah I know, an English malt matured in Sauternes sounds a bit like some Chinese Appenzeller, but in this case, there’s something that seems to work. In fact, the Sauternes does most of the job, with mirabelles, apricots, honey, vanilla fudge, and perhaps a little rubber (sulphury), while the distillate only adds a porridgy side. With water: perhaps a little more mineral. Mouth (neat): not bad at all, I must say. Not that this is Agincourt/ Azincourt reloaded, but once again, the Sauternes tends to lead, with notes of a plum pie straight from the oven as well as quinces, but the spirit’s a little more talkative on your palate, with a lemony/porridgy expression. With water: sweet creamy maltiness covered with a lot of mirabelles, orange marmalade, and more quince jelly. What was the château again? Finish: not that long, and perhaps not extremely ‘focussed’. Plums and muesli. Comments: there’s an experimental side to this. I find it very honest. SGP:551 - 79 points.
