American Oak Single Cask TD0169 was distilled in November of 2006 and decanted in August of this year for a maturation of twelve years in a single, 200L American oak ex-bourbon cask. Bottled at 47.6% ABV, this cask is a deliciously aromatic and malty expression of the Sullivans Cove style with all the good things we look for like grain, fruit, nuts, creamy texture and a touch of spice. What more could you ask for?
Nose: Both nutty and floral with perfumed musk, chocolate malt, banana, brioche, and orange peel. Waxy with tropical fruits, dark cherry wood and citrus.
Palate: Deliciously viscous texture along with big citrus flavours of lemon cake and zest, sweet pastry, cloves, apples, aniseed and an interesting mineral note like a French white wine.
Finish: The creamy texture lingers beautifully with hints of Nutella, custard, vanilla beans, banana and star anise along with aged, spicy, woody notes like sandalwood and cedar.
