Mackey Tawny Non-Char Cask R5 Release Single Malt Whisky
Small Batch Triple Distilled Tasmanian Release 5 Tawny Non-Char Cask
An exceptional triple distilled unpeated single malt from highly sought-after Mackey distillery at Shene Estate. Mashed, Fermented, distilled, matured and bottled onsite, this premium Tasmanian single malt is rich, viscous and sublimely enjoyable. Release 5 was aged in French Oak Tawny (Australian Port) Non-Char casks and cut at 49% ABV.
Nose: Rich tawny port and treacle toffee with undertones of citrus Marmalade and blood plum jam.
Palate: Clean and bright notes of candied peel and dried apricots. The overall palate experience is very fresh and clean without any cloying sugary heavy notes. This dram delivers delicious fruit notes free from the heavy undertones often found in big port cask whiskies. The alcohol balance is nothing short of perfect as it carries the delicate flavours without any heat or dominance whatsoever. Adding water is unnecessary but a couple of drops simply heightens the sweetness.
Finish: Sensationally clean and fruity. This whisky is all class and elegance with the triple distillation delivering clarity of flavours rarely found in conventional port cask offerings.
