Fans of powerful, sherry matured malts will be looking forward to tasting Cotswold's latest. Throughout its relatively short history, the distillery have aged their whisky in a variety of casks made from different woods (both Spanish and American oak), in different sizes (250-litre Hogsheads and 500-litre Butts) and seasoned with different wines (dry Oloroso and sweet Pedro Ximénez). Every year they create a blend from these various cask types with the aim of delivering the ultimate sherried whisky experience. Each batch will be unique, but will always be full-term matured in sherry casks. 9900 bottles are on offer at natural strength.

Other reviews... Nose: Full on flaming Christmas cake here, the brandy has just been lit and the cake split open. Dark-skinned fruits abound, plums in port, blackcurrant jam and Medjool dates. Palate: Those fruits come through first, then treacle and sweet dates, crumpets with golden syrup and a little cinnamon spice. Finish: Slowly dried with a little cracked black pepper spice and redcurrant tang. Comment: A nice, not-quite-sherry-bomb whisky that has plenty of balance between sweetness, the wood and fruits. - Rob Allanson, whiskymag.com

Notes from the producers...  Nose: Brown sugar and cherry pie with a touch of roasted coffee beans. Palate: Viscous and rich. Full of dark stone fruits, chocolate and a hint of roasted almonds. Finish: Peppery oak spice accompanied by notes of dried fruits. 57.4% Alc./Vol.
