St George's Distillery Chapter 11

St George's Distillery Chapter 11

Official bottling
Single malt - East Anglia
White wine
46% ABV

Nose: Peat, prunes, lemon zest, walnuts, raisins, hints of white grapes. 
Mouthfeel: Heavy body, syrupy, thick, viscous. 
Tasting:  Bitter sour. Peat, smoke, wood ash, white grapes, lemon zest, walnuts. 
Finish: Long. Lemon zest, wood ash, prunes, hints of pear. 


Heavily peated expression from St George's distillery. This one is full of fatty acids, it's thick and lemony on the tongue, and bitter - not the floral bitterness that I sometimes find, and associate with ginseng, but a mouth puckering tannic bitterness that's a bit rarer. Walnut skins, very thick black tea, that sort of thing. Glorious fruity finish too. Very nice.


I like this.
