Cotswolds Single Malt
I have to admit that I didn’t even know that English whiskies existed … and there are more than just this one, so I was skeptical and would not have bought it at full price, assuming it would be sub-standard to traditional Scottish Single Malts. However, Masters of Malt had a good discount on it and therefore it felt rude not to try it.
We sat down last evening and eyed our new collection of whiskies, an English (this one), an Irish, a Scottish and an Australian, and both decided we should try this. We were both, very pleasantly surprised.
This is a fruity whisky, plenty of flavour, easy to drink and certainly should be considered very carefully along with some of the Scottish whiskies. I would give this at least an 8/10.
Here is what Masters of Malt have to say about it: -
Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: The first thing you notice are spicy cereal notes, malt, and porridge, then comes the fruit - orange peel and lemon. Grassy and floral flavours followed by marzipan.
Palate: Beautiful texture, creamy and round, with sweet citrus fruit and black pepper.
Finish: Good length. There’s vanilla custard and a lift of aromatic freshness that will make you want another sip.
