Good price for this. Nas not overly valid here as it's their first release. And quite tasty.

I agree, just wouldn't want people turning up their noses at the lack of a number on the bottle. Turns out it's 4 yo.

Very interesting, people should watch that before automatically voting cold because it's a NAS.
I'll be getting a bottle of this.

And here's another very favourable review:

It's pretty decent this is. I've got part of a small bottle left. Reminds me a little bit of glen morangie port wood finish (toffee, caramel etc)
I'm guessing there's no peat/smoke in it?

Funnily enough I was speaking to the reps from the distillery today - it's actually a little younger than that, around 3 1/2 years. Demand has been high (it's top quality spirit) and they only released their first bottle of actual whisky back in Oct 2017. It'll stay young until the stock gets old enough to release an age-statement bottling.

Taste wise it's lovely but still very harsh, which is not surprising given the age. Wouldn't pay full price, but at 46% and natural colour, £35 isn't bad.

I must admit that I was really rather smitten with one of their representatives at the whisky show in London a few months ago 😄

I don't get it as being harsh at all, the nose is unbelievable for such a young whisky, maybe the palate doesn't quite live up to the smell, but still very drinkable. For me I find it very refreshing that it's distinctly different to a scotch.

We all have different tastes, which makes the wonderful world of whisk(e)y all the more interesting and enjoyable.

I was at the show too, what a cracking year. Totally agree that it's great for such a young whisky, especially the nose - I think they put a lot of work into sourcing top quality casks. Huge potential for the future. They have got a bit of spirit maturing in ex-Laphroaig quarter casks at the moment...would love to try it!

Happy drinking my friend!

Absolutely love The Whisky Exchange Show in London; such a wonderfully friendly, civilised gig. Tried the Bimber Re-Charred there and recently picked up a bottle; similar to the Costwolds in that they have put so much effort into the spirit that its youth in the barrel is not as much of a factor as mainstream whiskies. Really exciting things happening with smaller whisky distilleries

Probably a bit early in the morning to return the wishes of happy whisky drinking to you, but... it is the weekend
