THIS SMALL AMOUNT OF DISTILLERY-EXCLUSIVE STOCK IS BEING RELEASED ONLINE DUE TO THE CLOSURE OF OUR CELLAR DOOR. STRICTLY LIMTED TO ONE BOTTLE PER PERSON.

Special Cask Edition #6, TD0265, was distilled in April of 2008 and decanted in October last year for a maturation of 11 years and six months. Aged in a 300-litre, first fill American oak ex-Apera (Australian sherry-style fortified wine) cask, and bottled at 47.6% abv, this whisky is the first of its kind to be released by Sullivans Cove.

"This unique Apera cask yielded a luxurious, velvety delight with layers of nostalgic confectionary and aromatic spice. Highly nuanced and beautifully balanced, this is a truly memorable whisky. "
- Kirsten Laurie, Production Manager


TASTING NOTES

NOSE: Apricot jam and ripe nectarines in a big old barn full of freshly harvested hay. There's also baked apples with raisins and delicate spices, heaps of buttery caramel and toasted malt, and a hint of freshly pressed linen. 

PALATE: Rich, creamy and viscous with a burst of Maltesers followed up by apricots and plums dusted with cocoa powder. Plenty of chewy caramel, dried fig and clove balanced out with a touch of refreshing sea salt.

FINISH: Refined tannins balance perfectly as it swells towards a decadent finish of dulce de leche and bread-and-butter pudding along with cocoa, pepper and toasted marshmallow. Wonderfully delicate and complex.
