Cotswolds, Founders Choice (700ml)
Cotswolds Distillery - Founders Choice Single Malt Whisky
The Founder’s Choice release begins with Cotswolds brilliant new make spirit – creamy and incredibly fruity, thanks to the pair of yeasts, 90-hour fermentation and tight heart cut on the spirit still.
The spirit is diluted to 63.5% ABV for casking, and then filled into American Oak STR barriques.
The casks matured for just over three years before Cotwold's Founder Dan selected the nine that would go into this first ever batch of Founders Choice single malt.
The casks were then disgorged and bottled at natural cask strength, non-chill filtered and with no added colouring.
Nose: Dry hay and cut wood, with dark chocolate and dried figs, and plums in sweet syrup.
Palate: Warming cereal and toast notes, with lots of fresh red fruits and butterscotch.
Finish: Hints of spicy oak, lots of dried fruit and a lingering nutty, dry note.
