Batch DC102 is made of up of three French Oak ex-tawny casks between ten and eleven years old, and four American oak ex-bourbon casks between eleven and thirteen years old.
"This whisky is quietly confident, like a gentle leader. The characteristic citrus-honey Sullivans Cove note is strong with this one, and the bees have been busy here, too."
- Heather Tillott, Production Manager
NOSE: grain forward notes of baking rye bread with walnuts, woodworking shed, coconut and a hint of cocoa, followed by a big wave of honey, beeswax and orange cake.
PALATE: lots more honey, as well as a briny coastal note and canned peaches in syrup, a warm spice of almonds and oat biscuits bringing earthy balance. Very smooth.
FINISH: more honey (we're sensing a pattern here!), orange peel and a big wave of vanilla cream, then a hint of lingering tropical fruits.
