Adnams Triple Malt Whisky – 47% ABV (~£34)

From the first brewery / distillery (a bristillery?!) in England and where beer has been brewed for 670 years. Built in 2010, the Copper House Distillery sits within the Adnams brewery in Southwold, Suffolk.

This whisky is produced using a trio of malted grains - barley, wheat and oats. It's then allowed to mature in new American oak casks for five years.

They use the same local ingredients to make our spirits – barley, rye, wheat and oats – as they do for beers.
The mash is 65-70% wheat, 20% barley 10% oats. They knew from brewing beer that if you add wheat to a beer, you make it smooth & creamy and oats make it nutty & sweet

Nose: Complex, notes of spice, coconut and toasted oak, citrus fruit and sweet honey

Palate: Continued chocolatey elements, with a touch of bubble gum and charred oak

Finish: Long, satisfying
