To mark the 100th batch of this award-winning Tasmanian single malt whisky, and as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations this year, we've put together a very special edition of Double Cask. DC100 is made up of some our very oldest casks - and therefore some of the oldest whiskies in Australia.
For this batch we've married several 18-year-old American oak ex-bourbon casks with two eleven-year-old French oak ex-tawny casks. The result is a whisky of incredible depth and texture due to the considerable age of the American oak casks, lifted by the bright sweetness of the younger French oak. Presented in a hand-made solid oak box and bottled at 47.4% abv, this unique whisky is a piece of Sullivans Cove history never to be repeated.
NOSE: Lots of banana cream pie, baked peaches, dried apple and ripe pineapples, with, vanilla bean, bay leaf, sweet malt, fine leather and an elegant floral note.
PALATE: Rich, sweet fruit fills the palate. Toffee apples, candied citrus peel and ripe plums mingle with the honey-driven mid palate, while dark chocolate and beeswax bring an earthy element to the mix, as well a touch of bright eucalyptus and mint. Beautiful smooth texture.
FINISH: The bright tropical fruits are followed by the earthier notes of malt grain, cocoa, mixed nuts and vanilla. A luscious, mouth-coating texture drives the finish on to Nana's scones fresh from the over with jam and thick cream.
