- English Single Malt Whisky
- Distillery Bottling
A beautifully presented and very limited edition from Norfolk's St George's Distillery. A whisky chosen from distillery founder James Nelstrop's private stash of barrels and bottled in December 2011 after five years of maturation - their first whisky of that age. The cask is number 5, filled on 26th November 2006 and used to hold bourbon from Jim Beam.

Tasting Notes by Dominic Roskrow for Whisky AdvocateYou'll struggle to find this, as it has been snapped up quickly, but if you can, don't miss out. This whisky was originally made by Iain Henderson, is bottled at 5 years old, and marks a significant step forward for this fledgling distillery. The sappy notes have retreated and are being replaced by a wonderful sweet lemon and creamy vanilla whisky. The pinprick pepper adds a delightful dimension. 87 Points
