Continuing our streak of firsts, we have our first Western Australian whisky!
Aged in sherry casks and bottle 098 of a 300 bottle batch, we have high hopes for this.
The presentation is great, a clear plastic box containing a fantastically shaped bottle. The colour is a light golden colour. Topped with an ominous screw on cap.
A boutique distillery producing premium quality single malt whisky using time honoured techniques and traditional copper pot stills. Each batch is produced and bottled by hand.
By world standards we are a tiny operation... which is the way they like it.
Our focus is on quality - quantity is irrelevant.
Exhibiting spice and fruit aroma when neat, a splash of water unleashes malted barley, aromas of sherry and vanilla with hints of honey, raisins and buttery caramel.
Medium coloured with intense and complex flavours, a full taste and a smooth finish.
"Lemony on the node"
"Like a creme brulee"
"A lemony caramel"
"Very smooth, no burn"
"Little burn in the mouth but very smooth on the way down"
"A lot of citrus in the flavour"
"It's a very unique whisky, great distinct aromas and impressive flavour"
"It's a summer whiskey"
Overall a really easy whiskey to drink. We're getting lots of sweetness and citrus. Really smooth to go down.
This is hands down the best Australian Whiskey we've had to date.
