Casked in 2014 and bottled in 2017 this is a stunning release from the Cotswolds distillery.
The first batch was released in Oct 2017, and comprised just 5000 bottles.? It is now on batch 4 which comprises 10800 bottles.
Although this is a young whisky it is full of flavour and has been going down a storm with nearly everyone who has tasted it.
Whisky Unplugged (https://whiskyunplugged.com) placed this is the nuber 4 slot of their top 10 whiskies for 2018 -? quiet a feat for a young English whisky. They said:
“The whisky world has seen a real explosion of new distilleries in recent years, and whilst lots of new makes, near-whiskies and new releases have been populating the market, they have mostly done so at some eye-watering prices. The Cotswolds? first distillery has bucked this part of the trend however by producing a quality first single malt whisky that displays a flavour profile and maturity beyond its years, whilst not braking the bank. ?The sherry-rich flavours and fresh malt character make for a delicious whisky that can hold its own against any long-established players, and with numerous little experiments and permutations already starting to come out form the distillery, then the future of the?Cotswolds Distillery?is looking bright and this is a fine foundation to build from. Sure the first releases came out in 2017, but it never made its way to us until 2018 and still stands as one of the whisky highlights of the year!”
