Matured in a pair of 100L Tawny Port casks for three years before being transferred and finished for just under two years in a fresh 225L Tawny Port cask.
Expressed at 51.1%, this is a big, bold and rich, Tawny port cask whisky.
This whisky is a very different expression and experience to our traditional Hobart Whisky releases typically matured in ex-bourbon and finished in fortified casks.
Batch Nº: 21-005
Bottled: 28 May 2021
A nose dominated by stewed fruit and burnt sugar, with a mild citrus spice.
On the palate, toasted oak, dark fruit, and prominent fortified influence work in harmony with the tannins. Orange marmalade and fresh malt, a tantalising tartness, with hints of dark chocolate and dates.
A mild sweetness in the finish is complimented with a bitter orange, developing and lingering as a slight dryness, inviting yet another sip.
