Light gold color. Aromas and flavors of fresh cut hay and cedar shingles, candied lemon peel, peanut shells, and pilsner malt at the brewery with a fat body and a very long finish displaying notes of lemongrass, bay leaves, wood smoke, and baked pineapple. A world-class Whisky that will keep those kilted cousins on notice.

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.
