Time to Taste
If you’re now convinced that it’s time to stop thinking about men in kilts then put your Glenlivet aside and try something that’s produced a little closer to home. Here are a few of our very favourite English whiskies to get you started.
The English – Original
The English Whisky Company
The classic whisky from our favourite Norfolk distiller, this unpeated single malt was a Gold Medal winner at the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. It’s aged in carefully chosen Bourbon casks imported from America, giving it a gentle, creamy profile offering those characteristic vanilla notes.
On the palate it’s nutty and clean – expect almond and hazelnut to caress your taste buds, alongside some zesty orange and tropical fruits. Fabulously easy-drinking and a great one for lovers of a softer tipple.
Adnams Triple Malt Whisky
To many, the Adnams name is more familiar in the context of excellent craft beers – but in sunny Southwold on the Suffolk coast, their whisky distillery is also creating wonderful things. Their Triple Malt is aged in new American oak and combines wheat, barley and oats for an unbeatably smooth, creamy taste sensation.
Look out for bold, boisterous flavours of coconut and vanilla thanks to the barrels, whilst the palate provides a complex, luxurious taste profile featuring everything from honey and citrus fruits to some decadent chocolate notes.
