St Geroge's distillery Coronation 60th Anniversary English single malt whiskey. Limited release of 1,850 bottles to mark the 60th anniversary in 2013 of Her Majesty The Queen’s Coronation.
Nose: Lovely aroma of toffee. Very buttery – think subtle hints of vanilla and buttered popcorn. Delicate scent of liquorice/aniseed as well as raisins and sultanas. Also shades of oak and fresh passion fruit. After opening up in the glass for a while a lovely aroma of fresh baked bread pudding becomes prominent.
Palate: Starts very soft, creamy and buttery with notes of vanilla, honey and toffee. Sweet, spicy and oaky. Nice oily texture on the palate with hints of orange, cinnamon and cloves. A fantastic taste of sticky toffee pudding develops after a while (I like sticky toffee pudding !!). Nice long malty finish which runs from sweet to spicy and then dry.
