English Whisky Chapter 9 was pure Tropic Thunder. I haven't tried this sweet whiskey that offers as much smoke at the same time. A very fresh and welcome addition to my memory cabinet of smoke. Like the movie Tropic Thunder it gives you both laughter and excitement. And the laughter came purely because of the eccentrics this whiskey gave me. Unlike the movie Tropic Thunder, enjoy this slowly, let it open up in your glass. It gets lot better when you leave it alone for 10 minutes or more.
Even though Chapter 9 was sweet as hell it still was smoky enough. This coming from a fellow who loves the hard and heavy Islay stuff.
St. George's distillery can be proud of their smoky whiskey, a job well done! And most of all, they've done something completely their own, a signature whiskey that will leave an impression.
Nose: Sweet, smoky and oily. Toffee hits you very strongly. One of the most eccentric smoky aromas out there, "Tropical smoke".
Taste: Sweetness continues in the taste. Smoke leaves in the background as the creamy vanilla and butterscotch take over.
Finish: Smoke gets back bigger and stronger but the finish could be much longer. Leaves you yearning for more that coffee-like aftertaste.
Balance: Overall a good and fresh smoky whisky. Give it some time to open up, the taste and aromas get lot better if you let it be for a while.
