A superbly crafted whiskey. Notes of orange peel, spice, oaky malt and dark sugar.
Tasting Notes: This is a first, for the Cotswold distillery, but for the region as a whole. Indeed, the whisky aims to capture the flavours of the area, using only barley that was grown in the Cotswolds. A great part of the revival for English Single Malts.
This grain is distilled in Cotswolds’ pair of copper pot stills, named Mary and Janis. The spirit is the aged in a mixture of former Bourbon American oak barrels and ex-red wine casks.
The final product is a sweet, malt-forward dram which serves up plentiful flavours of rich red fruit, warm malt, orange citrus peel, toasted nuts, spice and rum-like molasses.
Bottled at 46% ABV and without chill filtration, this is a superbly crafted whisky that justifies the hype.
