Cotswolds Single Malt Bottling Note

Very exciting stuff here, folks! This is the first single malt whisky from the Cotswolds Distillery (as well as being the first single malt whisky ever distilled in the Cotswold countryside!). A much-anticipated release, which has been produced using barley grown in the Cotswolds, distilled in their Forsyths copper pot stills (Mary & Janis) and aged in a combination of ex-bourbon and red wine casks. We've been eagerly awaiting this whisky, and we know plenty of you have been too!

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.

Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky Reviews


Disappointing. A triumph of marketing over substance. Too young by a good four years and a wild unbalanced spirit. I’m keeping mine for cocktails.

Pleasantly surprised!

Had a taste in their shop on Broadway high street and wasn’t expecting much, initial impression seemed like it was going the way I thought, pronounced burn, definitely young but then when the burn dissipated there was a lovely long finish, quite sweet but lots of spice, reminiscent of mince pies, little orange peel, vanilla, cola, smells like an old fashioned which isn’t a surprise given the bourbon barrels involved. Really not bad for a regular sipper at £30!

I was expecting better!

Read good reviews about this one, but after today's bottle kill I have to conclude that it was nice but not memorable. I didn't taste like a whisky circa 46% ABV and indeed I found little to excite on the nose and a mouthfeel that suggested the whisky that was subject to a certain amount of chill filtration. For me, this was a malt that was close in profile to Monkey Shoulder, except the latter is a better experience at the typical price point. Perhaps it is a reflection of the lack of years in maturation but I would suggest that the Cotswolds will be an entirely different whisky with at least 10 years in cask to make this a more pleasing presentation. At around £30 a bottle, I would be looking elsewhere. Good effort but ultimately, not a choice I will be repeating.

Very disappointing, thin and weird flavour

This came as the 6th December offering of my Masters of Malt advent calendar and I'm glad it did as otherwise I might have bought a bottle as I generally like whiskies aged in red wine casks. It was very disappointing. Surprisingly thin and watery mouth feel for a 46%, not a hint of waxiness (chill filtered perhaps?), a poor finish and overall it didn’t taste like a malt whisky at all.
After two sips the rest went down the drain and I moved back to 2nd December which was still waiting for me and turned out to be a very fine Benromach.

A delicious dram.

It isn't Scottish, it doesn't have an age statement. Should I try it, I thought. So glad I did, I'm no expert but this is delicious dram.

A Let Down

I'd been waiting for this to be in stock at my local supermarket, having seen it online.
I'm a big fan of ex red wine casks, so had high hopes. A massive let down though. It drinks very young with high burn. This makes it difficult to appreciate the flavour. As others have stated, perhaps with more time in the barrel it will improve. For the price though, even at £30 there's at least a dozen better choices.

Got potential

Initially this seemed good but when I started drinking Hibiki it put this into perspective. Its not a bad dram but all in all its not as good as the reviews make out. Theres too much burn and too young for me. I think given a few more years in the cask this could be a 4 star rating.

Better than expected

First try, nice and creamy, not so complex. Would be good for a session. Good work

Best of the supermarket whiskies.

No added colour, not chill filtered and bottled at 46% - this is clearly made for us proper whisky drinkers. Easily the best whisky you can find in a supermarket and if you can buy it at £30, even better. If Cotswold can bottle a decent whisky and sell it in the local supermarket then so can all the established Scotch producers! Then again, if the supermarket sold decent stuff, we wouldn’t have to buy it on MoM.

Well worth a try

Just as good as many scotch single malts around about the same price in fact better than many
