English Whisky Co. Chapter 6, St Georges Distillery, 3 yo, 46%

Lots of oak, some honey sweetness, and surprisingly smooth. It's more mature than it has any right to be, with little of the spirity new make taste you might expect in a 3 year old. Maybe climate does make a difference when it comes to maturation. (See Amrut)

But ultimately it's still— somewhat painfully— lacking in depth or complexity. You'll get far more enjoyment for the same, or less, money with almost any >10 yo single malt Scotch whisky.

Give it a few years though...
