Cotswolds 3 Years Old Batch 1

Cotswolds-3-Years-Old-Batch-1-TBWC

Cotswolds 3 Years Old Batch #1 whisky review: A very fresh expression, spicy, woody and tannic, a lovely zingy fruit sweetness. Young and sharp and a little too woody but shows great promise for what is being produced at the Cotswolds distillery, I’d certainly like to try more. 73/100

Arran 6 Years Old Rum Octave Finish

Arran 6 Years Old Oloroso Rum Octave Finish – The Octave Project whisky review: Finally a little bit of body in this one, it borders on becoming undone by the spirity & spicy nature which come across as youthful exuberance. I have come unstuck upon several rum-cask finishes of late but this one has renewed my interest in them. A very pleasant way to finish off our Octave Project sampling.

Arran 6 Years Old Rioja Octave Finish

Arran 6 Years Old Rioja Octave Finish – The Octave Project whisky review: Wow, superbly good and equal to the Oloroso in enjoyment terms. This Rioja-cask finish is a little dustier and drier and has a slightly lighter fruit profile with hints of spice and greener oak wood. That classic combo of strawberry and lime that really works. 73/100
