    Cotswolds 3yo TBWC Bottling Note

    This is the first batch of Cotswolds single malt English whisky That Boutique-y Whisky Company's has ever bottled! The Cotswolds Distillery has been creating fine spirits in the great English countryside with locally grown barley since 2014 and this delightful young whisky should prove no exception. The label art features the quaint and picturesque distillery on a beautifully sunny day – and look – a familiar, friendly face is waving to you! Although, it does look like there might be something sinister under that hedge…

    Notes taken from my blog:

    Quite young but quite good, the spirit is solid and the maturation went quite well in those 3 short years. Not sure about the wood and Boutique-y’s brand ambassador Dave Worthington didn’t remember with certainty which wood it was, but anyway, that’s a good young whisky (might well be bourbon casks then STR casks: red wine casks having been shaved, toasted and re-charred)
    • Nose
      Vanilla, caramel and tropical fruits : passion, mango and pineapple, but also orchard fruits with ripe apricots. The nose, though fruity, is also a bit spirity, but not that much for a whisky that young. A touch of cinnamon and some floral notes (lavender and roses?) are also discernable on the background.
    • Taste
      Sweet and spicy arrival with an oily mouthfeel, the palate is fruity, but the fruits are totally different from the nose: we’re more on citrus here with lemon, orange and grapefruit. Quite some spices with cinnamon and pepper, a bit of wood (was it an STR cask?) and toasted malt. Reduction brings more sweetness and reinforce the tingling pepper.
    • Finish
      Long and warm, the spices really warm the throat, even when reduced. Hints of grapefruit stay in the mouth.

    I believe this is the first independent bottling of Cotswolds single malt.

    N: STR-light and mature for its style.
    T: A broad middle and the illusion of age.
    F: Much like the official bottlings, albeit the lactose-y fruits show up later.
    C: I like Cotswolds a lot and this independent expression is more than favourable when held up against the distillery’s early official releases.

    Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
    Nose: Butterscotch and brown sugar are followed by soft nectarines, apricots and caramelised Seville orange marmalade. Marzipan, creamy vanilla and a little ginger develop.

    Palate: Rich malt, oaky tannins and winter spices lead. There’s also plenty of sweetness from toffee apples, dark red fruits and golden syrup, and a touch of pink grapefruit bitterness.

    Finish: Dark treacle toffee and cloudy apple juice, with a hint of dried grass.

    Overall: Beautifully deep and sumptuous.
