Default Yeast for high alcohol beer?

I have created a recipe for small batch of Honey Hibiscus beer that I am going to attempt very soon. According to my app used for building the recipe the alcohol content will be around 7.60%. This is much higher then any of my previous batches, so I was curious if I should use another yeast besides the Nottingham dry yeast packets that I use. Any advice?

Nottingham is a beast and I've used it up to 12% ABV brews. You'll be fine.

Yeah I just fermented a stout that was a 8% ABV and it turned out awesome.

7.6 is not very high. Any yeast can do that. Just pitch enough.
