Our first release of Sullivans Cove XO Single Cask Brandy, cask number TDB0040 was distilled in September of 2008 from a combination of Tasmanian Sauvignon Blanc, Gewurztraminer and Chardonnay wines, and aged in a 300L American Oak ex-tawny cask.
"At its heart, this brandy is all vanilla, almonds and prunes in Armagnac. The nose has notes of liquorice, clove, pipe tobacco, and candied ginger, while the palate is rich with velvety toffee, chocolate fudge, musk, and damp forest floor. A fine tannin structure holds the sweeter notes in balance, and the finish sees a flush of apricot followed by lengthy cocoa. We waited a long time to see how this brandy would turn out, and we couldn't be happier with the results."
