Double Cask Batch DC105 is a marriage of portions of eight different casks ranging in age from 10 to 14 years. As well as American oak ex-bourbon casks, this batch also contains a high proportion of ex-tawny casks as well as whisky from two French oak casks previously used to mature Australian white wine for a complex, lively and fruit driven character.
NOSE: Dried apple and ripe pear, custard with nutmeg on top and homemade apricot jam cooking on the stove. Vanilla bean, gingerbread, and a deep, floral toffee fill the nose, with notes of lemon verbena and mint offering brightness.
PALATE: Initially, a big wave of toffee and candied orange with lots of berry jam. Warm, ripe citrus flavours and a medley of dark, sweet notes like preserved plums, honey straight from the comb, burnt sugar and molasses with a huge, dreamy texture.
FINISH: Vanilla sponge with blackcurrant jam, liquorice, coriander seed and ginger. Lingering, ripe, tropical fruits like mango, who sits and watches the warm citrus notes sink into the sea like a sunset.
