The English Whisky Co. “Lest We Forget” 1914 - 1918 Limited Edition, 45%

Price: $76 Issue: Spring 2015 Reviewer: Jonny McCormick

A creamy delight: rice pudding laden with swollen raisins, brown sugar melting on hot porridge (if this were scotch, it would be salt). It begins sweet, with a juicy fruitiness before a rodeo of spiciness bucks on the tip of the tongue. The texture is creamy and light but substantial enough to carry these big flavors. Dried lemon and double cream stretch out into a lengthy finish. A unique profile, but a fitting tribute. (1,499 bottles)£50
