Heartwood is run by local alchemist Tim Duckett (aka Mr H). Heartwood has won countless awards on some of the most prestigious whisky stages over the past decade (and his other brand TIB is now following suit).
Heartwood brings back the Mongrel with the release of ‘Shot in the Dark’, the first muscat cask matured whisky filled with Lark origin, 100% peated new make at cask strength. Mr H states: “It was a bit of a risk as it was (I believe) the first muscat cask filled in Australia (may be wrong) and it is from a muscat barrel”.
Damn tasty and only 334 bottles in existence.
Cask No: LD961 Cask Type: Australian Muscat Sphagnum Peat Influence: 100% Filled: November 2013 Bottled: March 2019
