Hunnington Triple Distilled Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky - Cask HD004
This is the November 2020 release from the family owned and operated distillery from the sleepy seaside town of Kettering in Tasmania's south. This triple distilled single malt was matured for two years in a twenty litre Australian Sherry barrel and bottled at an alcohol strength of 45.4%.
Here are some tasting notes from Bill Lark:
Good clean soft nose - buttery malt with hints of wood and herbs then “sherry” toffee taking over.
A balance of sweet notes and slightly drying marzipan immediately delight the front palate before quickly building - big, bold and well rounded around the mouth and driven across the palate by a well balanced sense of alcohol.
The whisky then gently slips into a finish of creamy fruit pastille and lingering malt.
