Heartwood and TIB Virtual Whisky Event
A Virtual Whisky Event
Heartwood & Tasmanian Independent Bottlers will team up again with Destination Cellars for an evening of great drams, but this time you can enjoy the drams and erudite banter from Mr H from the comfort of your own home . Our first virtual tasting event will go live at 7pm Wednesday April 22nd.
Due to Social Distancing we will bring Distant Socializing, we will send you out the sample bottles and then later on we will send you an invitation to join the Zoom meeting. To participate all you will need is your computer or phone. Or you can enjoy the samples in the solitude and sanctity of your home at any time.
Here's a line up to make you salivate:
1. You will get the first look at the pre-release of the TIB Vatted Malt #3 at 49.6% abv consisting of two ex-Sherry casks from 'a Renowned NSW Distillery', & a splash of peated ex-Sherry cask from local Adams Distillery.
2. TIB RD0027 Sherry Cask 47.9% - Gold Medal at the Wizards of Whisky 2020
3. TIB 'Renowned NSW Distillery' Release 3 matured in two ex-Sherry casks (TIB ??0017 & ??0018) before bottling at 46.1%
4. Heartwood Wizards Sceptre 60.7% the latest high octane release. This is composed of 100 litres of an old Fino Sherry Lark LD 766 cask, with about 80 litres added from Old Kempton RD 109 Oloroso Sherry cask, and to finish it off, a fair splash of a smoky, peaty bomb from Belgrove PB 121.
TIB is run by local alchemist Tim Duckett (aka Mr H), producer of the famed high-octane Heartwood brand, who has created TIB to offer a more gentle style of whisky with less 'mongrel' than the Heartwood releases. Heartwood has won countless awards on some of the most prestigious whisky stages over the past decade and TIB is now following suit.
He sources spirit from Tasmania, mainland Australia, and New Zealand based on its texture and flavour profile. It is then matched to a specific barrel type. Currently they have selected 15 barrel types for maturation of the spirit including:
Sherry, Port, Bourbon, Muscat, Botrytis, Virgin oak, Re-educated 2nd fill, Rum, Bourbon Rum, Sherry Rum, Tokay, PX, Rye, Whisky beer. Also they will have oats, rye, & apple spirit. Exciting times.
