Dram Review: The Odd Whisky Coy Southern Coast Cask 43

[65.9%・4 Years Old・Distilled in 2011・Bottled in 2015・The Odd Whisky Coy Bottling・Cask No. 43・Single Cask Release]

Nose:

Muscovado sugar & dark chocolate, it’s sticky with plenty of Christmas spices to go with charred orange peels.  Heavily oaked with a faint whiff of dark soy sauce.

Palate & Finish:

Loud and spicy on the palate, a full chunk of woody note seasoned with balsamic vinegar.  Pitted cherries  with dark chocolate and peanut butter malted milk shake as over-powering spices explode all over the place.

The finish is much more palatable, with some dark chocolate, toffee and sweet raisins playing out the tail..

Thoughts:

An independently bottled single cask from a boutique Australian distillery before it got fashionable.  This youthful malt from the now defunct joint is exhibiting a lot of traits commonly found in young heavily cask aged Australian whiskies.. a respectable finish though..
