Aged in a 300L French oak ex-tawny cask for 16 years, HH0520 is one of the oldest casks of French Oak ever released by Sullivans Cove. Irresistibly dark and rich, this whisky is dream marriage of malt and fortified wine. Bottled at 47.5% abv, this cask produced only 169 bottles.
Each bottle comes in a solid walnut presentation box, and includes a letter of authenticity signed by Master Distiller Patrick Maguire and Production Manager Heather Tillott.
Nose: The darkest of all treacle and polished French oak furniture being warmed by a fire. Quality unlit cigars, prunes, molasses, cola and cherry jam.
Palate: Cherry cola, raisins, rosemary, dark chocolate, nutmeg, fine leather, candied orange peel and buttery shortbread.
Finish: An astoundingly thick texture that coats the palate completely and carries the dense brandied cherry flavour. Herbal, floral, prune and chocolate notes carry on for many minutes.
