Another stand-out bottling from That Boutique-y Whisky Company. This is the third batch of a 12-year-old dram of English Whisky Co.’s single malt. Only 299 bottles have been yielded from this batch. Coming from its St. George’s Distillery, the strength is an eye-watering 63.4% abv. Part of the Home Nations Series, the graphic novel style label on this one taps into England’s long mythology of dragon slaying.
Toasted oak, vanilla, butterscotch, and malted grains float up to the nose. The palate is one of citrus, vanilla, milk chocolate, and barley. The finish gives punchy notes of orange peel, biscuits, and dried spices.
