[65.00%・3 Years Old・Bottled in 2017・Official Bottling・Limited Release]
Thick molasses carrying the musky tone, fermented black tea really getting that pungent aroma across. Herbal orientated with a sprinkle of minerals, Japanese black sugar with maple syrup glazed walnuts.
Palate & Finish:
Thoroughly indulgent at first with the Port sweetness coming on in an exhilarating manner; the subtly placed peat is overshadowed by notes of glazed strawberries, blueberry syrup and cured prunes.
The oak comes in eventually to dry out the excessive sweetness at a moment that’s just about right, showing good restraint with traces of yoghurt coated sultanas left behind.
A whisky that mostly resembles what the world expects from a Tasmanian whisky: big, bold and highly entertaining. Some details could use some fine tuning but I am sure the fans won’t mind one bit.
