    official information:

    Cotswolds Peated Cask Single Malt Whisky is hand-crafted in small batches using 100% floor-malted local barley. Long fermentations and double pot distillation, followed by maturation in ex-peated quarter casks, create a wonderfully-balanced rich and fruity whisky with subtle notes of peat smoke. Bottled at cask strength.

    Malt: Odyssey, grown on Cotswolds farms and floor-malted at Warminster Maltings.

    Yeast: Two complementary varieties - Anchor and Fermentis - to ensure good yields and excellent fruity flavours.

    Water: Village water supply - filtered, softened and demineralised before use.

    Wood: Ex-peated quarter casks from Scotland

    Tasting notes:

    Nose: Vanilla with light charring and a touch of dried fruits and spice.

    Palate: Creamy peat smoke layered with light fruits and tannin-rich wood.

    Finish: Lasting finish of smoking embers, floral honey and woody sugars.

    We began making this single malt using 100% locally grown, floor-malted barley which is mashed and then fermented for more than 90 hours before a double distillation in our bespoke copper pot stills, resulting in a light and fruity new-make spirit.

    After being diluted to 63.5% ABV, we then filled ex-peated quarter casks from Scotland with the new-make spirit and left these to mature, allowing the rich and fruity spirit to take on a light smoked peat flavour. The whisky has been fully matured in these casks and bottled at cask strength (59.3% ABV), non-chill filtered and with no added colouring.

    On the nose very Caol Ila esq. Soft smoke, from casking short on the palate.

  3. Vince scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Remarkably drinkable for a NAS at high ABV. Pleasant peat dimension to overall well balanced dram.
