Christmas 2021 Limited Release
Let this be the spirit of your Christmas; Hobart Whisky Barrel Aged Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky finished in their own cherry liqueur cask.
The whisky started with a vatting of carefully selected casks, predominantly ex-Bourbon with a small portion of Pedro Ximinez. It was important to ensure that the mature stock selected provided a nice balance of spirit and wood to hold up against and complement the sweetness provided by the cherry liqueur cask.
The whisky was finished in the cherry liqueur cask for three months, followed by a period of resting before being bottled in time for the festive season.
This is a rich and sweet whisky, perfect alongside your Christmas feast, or a quiet dram to see out the end of 2021.
A sweet fruit-driven nose with red apple, icing sugar dusted cherries, and candied lollies.
The palate is thick, with notes of fresh raspberry lemonade, berry compote, maraschino cherries, and toffee apple. Sweet vanilla custard and honeycomb follow the initial fruit notes, with a subtle, fresh, rustic orchard element.
A long finish with dark fruit, black forest cake, and gentle spice.
Bottled: 8th November 2021, with a total of 186 Bottles
