The quality of output from The English Whisky Company is goping from strength to strength it would seem after two of their whiskies picked up “Silver Outstanding” awards at the International Wine & Spirits Competition.
Both the Chapter 11 and Chapter 11 Cask Strength single malts, produced at their St George’s Disitllery, collected the medals at the IWSC in London.
The IWSC judges described the Chapter 11 as: “Clean, crisp citrus on the nose with hints of cocoa and coffee and even a delicate wisp of peat. Fairly full in the mouth with good, rich malt and lots more citrus. Some firm peaty characters with good oak support. All in very youthful mode. Bodes well for the future.”
Of the Cask Strength expression, they said: “Nose carries a load of citrus notes on a backing of serious peat. Full malt in the mouth with rising sense of peat while citrus characters play a major part. Surprisingly smooth for such a youthful whisky and with good texture. Good mingle of citrus and smoky peat in the finish.”
In addition their Chapter 6 & Classic Single Malt Export both won silver. All are available online at www.englishwhisky.co.uk/.
