Sullivans Cove XO Single Cask TDB0047 was matured for eight years in an American oak cask previously filled with Sullivans Cove single malt whisky, and is the first cask of its kind to be released. Bottled at 47.8% abv, this unique spirit is a beautiful expression of the Tasmanian wines from which it was distilled, combining the richness of Sullivans Cove whisky barrels with Tasmania's incredible terroir. If there were ever a brandy for whisky drinkers, this is it.
Nose: Red berries and plums, dried herbs, sweet vanilla, orange and tobacco along with ginger cookies and cinnamon.
Palate: Lemon curd and chocolate with a huge fig and prune mid palate as well as intense woody spice.
Finish: Citrus peel and burnt sugar, with dark dried fruits and rich oak lingering for the long haul.
