Whisky Reviews for Cotswolds Distillery Founder's Choice

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.20 points

  1. holborndrinker scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A very good English whisky - could give a lot of malts from North of the Border a run for their money.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Fruity, woody - not overpowered by the high strength.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Massive burst of fruit and heat, very easy to drink.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Long, punchy finish.

  2. SAND scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    NOSE: Sweet barley juice, alcohol. Fruity notes. With air; fresh red fruits, some dried yellow fruits. (86-87p) With a few teaspoons of water the maltiness opens up but doesn’t change in character. (87-88p)
    TASTE: The arrival is strong, medium sweet. On the mid palate; rich in taste, sweet, some fruitiness but difficult to discern without water. (85-87p) With a few teaspoons of water the barley sweetness becomes more prominent and the pepperiness subsides a bit. (86-87p)
    FINISH: Mint, white pepper. (84-85p)
    OVERALL: A clean and well made (?) barley and distillate driven whisky where the wine cask plays 2nd violin. Total score 86-87 points.
