About English Whisky

About English Whisky
Though English whiskies are deeply in the shadow of their counterparts from Scotland, there are some excellent examples. The single malts, some of them peated, are excellent, with a golden yellow color, spicy, smoky aromas and a peppery finish. Though not as refined or as multilayered as the single malts from Scotland, these are quite impressive and make for elegant sippers, with or without a cigar.

Gold color. Aromas of ginger peach tea, pepsi, saddle soaped saddle, hay, dried figs and dates, alfalfa, and chocolate ovaltine with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, appealing, medium-long dark browned biscuits and coconut, lemon oil, spiced lime leaf tea, salami, and fennel finish. A distinctive, rich whiskey with a wild edge.
