What they say:
The Norfolk – Farmers. Single Grain Whisky. This is a very unique and special whisky, made from 8 different grains. A totally new product from St Georges. It is officially known as a Single Grain Whisky. The Norfolk carries a bowler hat as it’s main label image – this is because the bowler hat was invented in Norfolk!
All spice, cocoa and coffee grounds. Rich sweet and buttery. Slightly caramelised like a tarte tatin. Toffee, plums and dark cherries.
Rich and dry; again with cocoa and coffee. Spicy and oaky with notes of buttery popcorn. The plums and dark cherries come through on the palate. Slightly leathery with a long dry, spicy finish.
What I say:
Dram #3 from the 2017 #WorldWhiskyDay Worldwide Whiskies tasting set from The Dram Team. Distilled from 8 different grains at St. George’s Distillery in Norfolk, making for a rather complex grain whisky presented at 79° English proof (or 45% ABV)
Champagne gold (5/20) numerous slow-forming medium and oily tears leave fine legs
Pears, dusty and buttery cereals, shortbread, Danish butter cookies, red berry fruit, plum or cranberry
Buttery cereals, shortbread, Danish butter cookies, red berries, white chocolate buttons and white pepper
Long, dry, leathery and spicy rye
A very tasty English grain whisky, a good portion of the flavour stems from the cereals themselves as there is a touch of spice, fruits and buttery biscuits in here.
Don’t take my word for it:
