Released by the English Whisky Co., this is an English peated single malt whisky, rich in smoke and white pepper notes. Quite sweet and savoury on the nose with a dose of white pepper, smoked ham and peat followed by hints of vanilla, aniseed, ginger cake, lemon and lime zest. A clean creamy palate with astringent dry oak, the pepper and peat then develop. Light peat initially then a smoke bomb ! Again, fruity! The vanilla, ginger and aniseed are still there with tropical fruit. The finish is long, spicy and smoky.
