Limited Edition Double Cask DC100
To mark the 100th batch of this award-winning Tasmanian single malt whisky, and as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations this year, we've crafted a limited edition of Double Cask. Bottled at 47.4% ABV and presented in a handmade solid oak box, DC100 is made up of some of our very oldest casks, and therefore some of the oldest whiskies ever released in Australia.
"For this batch we've married several 18-year-old American oak ex-bourbon casks with two eleven-year-old French oak ex-tawny casks. The result is a whisky of incredible depth and texture due to the considerable age of the American oak casks, lifted by the bright sweetness of the French oak. This unique whisky is a piece of Sullivans Cove history never to be repeated." Heather Tillott, Production Manager
NOSE: Lots of banana cream pie, baked peaches, dried apple and ripe pineapples, along with vanilla bean, bay leaf, sweet malt, fine leather and an elegant floral note.
PALATE: Rich, sweet fruit fills the palate. Toffee apples, candied citrus peel and ripe plums mingle with the honey-driven mid palate, while dark chocolate and beeswax bring an earthy element to the mix, as well a touch of bright eucalyptus and mint. Beautiful smooth texture.
FINISH: The bright tropical fruits are followed by the earthier notes of malt grain, cocoa, mixed nuts and vanilla. A luscious, mouth-coating texture drives the finish on to Nana's scones fresh from the oven with jam and thick cream.
