Hobart Whisky ex-Bourbon/ex-Oloroso Sherry Cask 61.3% 200ml Five Year Anniversary Whisky
This whisky is a marriage of three casks. We started with a single 40L American Oak Ex-Bourbon Cask from Hillrock Distillery. This cask was laid down on the 6th of April 2016 giving it just over 4 years of age. We added to this marriage whisky from a 35L French Oak Oloroso Sherry cask. This cask was laid down on the 18th of August 2017 which gives it about 3 years of maturation. Lastly we added a dash of American Oak Ex-Bourbon matured whisky which had been finished in a 200L American Oak 10 year old Laphroaig Cask.
"We’re thrilled with the result of working with the DC team on this whisky. A part of our brand at Hobart Whisky is playing around with casks to provide the best possible outcome, generally through cask finishes, or marriages. It was great to be able to bring this Hobart Whisky ethos to the Destination Cellars release." John Jarvis
Nose : Turkish Delight, lychee, tobacco leaf, and apricots, opens up to berries and toffee apples and subtle tropical fruits followed by Banoffee Pie, raisin and apple bagels drizzled in cinnamon butter
Palate: Rich and robust. Peach and berry flambe, butterscotch pudding with vanilla custard and mandarin syrup, red apples, apricots, banana, toffee and strawberry Panna Cotta, some lovely subtle spices and a touch of smoke right in the middle
Finish: After a journey of layers between the juicy fruits of Oloroso, and the sweet toffee and vanilla's of bourbon; the sweetness lingers and rounds off to a flavour of redskin lollies and light earthy smokey oak. Time in the glass allows the whisky to open up to a great symphony of flavours and aromas
