Dram Review: Tasmanian Independent Bottlers Old Kempton Distillery Redlands Release 4 (Cask No. TIB RD 0013)

[47.7%・NAS・Bottled in 2018・Tasmanian Independent Bottlers Bottling・Cask No. TIB RD 0013・Single Cask Release]

Nose:

Remarkably malty as some rather young spirit at play. Creamed honey sprinkled with nibs of pepper, ginger and wild flowers.

Palate & Finish:

Mild sweetness as the spirit begins to reveal itself, pear sweets and citrus easing in.

A light finish that is mildly grassy.

Thoughts:

The dram feels like a good introduction to the distillery, which has been around long enough so much so that it has already gone through a name change but perhaps still remain somewhat anonymous to the casual Australian whisky fans because so few of the bottles have ever made it outside of Tasmania.

Redlands or Old Kempton is one of the main featured distilleries for Tasmanian Independent Bottlers and TIB certainly has done well making the distillery more accessible, the fourth TIB cask is not at all challenging but when you are still trying to draw some attention on the distillery this is not a bad cask to bottle.
