Archie Rose has joined forces with Melbourne’s acclaimed St Ali coffee roasters to bring you Blasphemy: a Coffee Whisky spirit that blends our award-winning Single Malt Whisky and St. Ali Orthodox & Wide Awake Coffee.
Purists may rally against the notion of subverting these two liquid obsessions and label Blasphemy an act of anarchy, but, on tasting the spirit and understanding the production processes behind the pairing, it soon makes perfect sense.
Blasphemy showcases both the unique Archie Rose six malt mash bill and the roasted notes from ST. ALi’s blends. Orthodox coffee meets the nuance of Wide Awake’s cold drip method with this double coffee mashup macerated and used to convert cask strength whisky to bottling strength.
The coffee notes have amplified our Single Malt Whisky’s chocolate and specialty roasted malts, and the result is an even richer and more expressive flavour profile than the sum of its parts. Blasphemy opens with notes of stewed apples, plum jam and fresh berries, then follows through into creme caramel, roasted hazelnuts, amaretto and dark chocolate.
Enjoy it neat or in a Boulevardier.
