The second Vatted whisky released by Tasmanian Independent Bottlers ??17+??18+RD0027 Sherry Casks 44.38% 100ml
TIB is run by local alchemist Tim Duckett, producer of the famed high-octane Heartwood brand, who has created TIB to offer a more gentle style of whisky with less 'mongrel' than the Heartwood releases.
He sources spirit from Tasmania, mainland Australia, and New Zealand based on its texture and flavour profile. It is then matched to a specific barrel type. Currently they have selected 13 barrel types for maturation of the spirit including: Sherry, Port, Bourbon, Muscat, Botrytis, Virgin oak, Re-educated 2nd fill, Rum, Bourbon Rum, Sherry Rum, Tokay, PX, Rye (soon), Whisky beer. Also they will have oats, rye, & apple spirit. Exciting times.
This is their second vatted release with whiskies from 'A Renowned' award winning NSW distillery, and Redlands Estate, matured in Hobart in Sherry casks under Tassie conditions. It was blended and bottled in December 2019.
TIB was awarded Independent Bottler of the Year (non scotch) Independent Bottlers Challenge from the Whisky Magazine and Australian Producer of the Year from the Wizards of Whisky.
