When The English Whisky Company was getting themselves setup and established they enlisted the help of semi-retired Laphroaig distiller Iain Henderson which is probably why their peated single malt turned out so good. There is an art to smoking the malt and blending the barrels to get the right mix of flavors while keeping a smoky backbone which is something Iain surely knows a thing or two about.

“Rich in smoke and white pepper notes. This develops notes of lemon drizzle cake, vanilla and tropical fruit on the palate”

Description

NOSE : The smokey peat comes up first, but much lighter than most Islay whiskies. Underneath the smoke are some very wonderful notes of strawberry, burned corn, iodine and anise, but strangely enough I didn’t really pick up much malt.

TASTE : There’s that delightful smokey peat up first, but like the nose it’s a rather light peat. Next to the smoke are some notes of vanilla, honey, brine, light fruit and of course malt.

FINISH : The long finish has a nutty characteristic that is filled with peat and malt. (thewhiskyjug.com)
