The second edition of "Dregs", a vatted Tasmanian malt whisky from the Lark and Tasmania (Sullivans Cove) distilleries.
Bottled September 2017 with 90 bottles in the release and caused a stir during the initial clamour for the bottling. Bottled at 62.2%.
In Heartwood's words for Dregs Volume 1: "It's a vatted malt containing around 20 different whiskies. Complexity is too simple a word to described the cacophony of flavours. There is something special about the DREGs, you can use it as a snow dome after a bush fire, if you don't want to drink it."
This comes from a private collection, only one to sell.
Heartwood - founded by Tim Duckett - is arguably Australia's most lauded independent bottler, having bottled a number of Tasmanian whiskies in the modern industry's formative years. Known for his unorthodox techniques of blending casks, beating his whisky with a paddle, rolling casks into the sun-exposed "hot box" of his warehouse - some Heartwoods are considered by whisky lovers to be amongst the best Australian whiskies ever released.
