Was given a gift of a their whisky bottled for M&S and it's quite pleasant. At that price it's a steal.
Did not realise England did Whisky though saying that you can get Japanese Whisky these days.
English whiskey I tried welsh whiskey and it was rotten. I’m afraid it’s Irish and scotch for me only.

I'm not a fan of the offerings from the English Whisky Company.

Being Scottish, I was given a bottle as an ironic gift by my boss when I got married. Wasn't cheap either, think it was in the region of £85. I ended up giving it away, it was truly awful.

I quite like the Cotswolds single malt whisky though, was given a miniature when it was launched. It was pretty good and seems to be well reviewed elsewhere. I wouldn't spend £45 on it though, there are too many better Scotch whiskies out there for that price.
English whisky lol
England now has around 14 whisky distilleries - there were none a decade or so ago. The whisky-making process is not dissimilar to making beer and England makes some very good beers from very high quality English grain. If it continues to invest, given how long it takes to produce a good single malt, the English whisky sector will do very well indeed.

Given the outstanding water quality, I'd be inclined to concentrate production in the Lake District and the rest of the North. Some lovely bottle name possibilities too - Black Tarn, Blea Tarn, Innominate Tarn, Coniston, Bassenthwaite, Keswick, Baugh Fell, Knoutberry Haw.
I've just tried it and it's not bad at all. A little young but all in all a decent drink. I'm not sure I'd pay £35+, but it's much better than a lot of the lower end of Scotch or Irish single malts.
It might be ok but for £35 you could buy something much better I’m sure. Each to their own but I know what I’d prefer to drink.
Which Welsh one did you try ? There’s lots and some are dreadful but some are delicious.
Bargain at that price. They must be old as it's their old branding

Aye good.
I tried Penderyn but it was a while ago and I can’t remember what the exact name was. It may have been Legend, it was rough and was set aside for hot whisky use only. It was a gift from someone, I won’t be buying it based on first impressions.

The Japanese have been making whiskey since Victorian times. Not that new a trend!

Japanese whiskies often beat Scotch whisky in competitions. The best Japanese whisky is as good as any Scotch. There are some terrible ones though
