Sullivans Cove 25th Anniversary Special Edition 21yo Tasmanian Single Malt whisky was distilled in 1997 and matured in 200L American oak ex-bourbon casks. Bottled at 49.6% ABV, this piece of liquid history is presented in a crystal decanter by Glencairn and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity signed by our Head Distiller and Production Manager.
Nose: Sweet vanilla musk fills the nose and draws you in. Maltesers, cinnamon, anise, dried apple, roasting pineapple, musk and a strong mixed berry jam note with a balancing whiff of ethereal perfume.
Palate: Intensely creamy and incredibly textural. Aloha! shouts the tropical fruit salad of pineapple, passionfruit and honeydew melon, served up with Chantilly cream, mixed berry jam, sweet pastry, vanilla custard, toffee and caramel fudge, all backed up by a deliciously warm barley grain note.
Finish: "Long" doesn't seem to do this justice. It’s fair to say epic. The warm grains are followed by all the sweet sugary things. Caramel, chocolate brownie, malt extract, custard, and raspberry jam. And low and behold, in even these oldest of Sullivans' whiskies, there is that quintessential coconut oil and fresh orange note, and it's everywhere at the never-ending story of this whisky’s finish.
