A single malt whisky distilled at Lark and curated and bottled by Heartwood in Tasmania.
Created from casks LD0323 (filled June 2007) and LD0407 (filled November 2007), these ex-bourbon casks were bottled together February 2017. 190 bottles at 63%.
In Heartwood's words, "The We Are TWISTED Cousins has been decanted and belted with a stick
"This whisky is the same as the original 'We Are Cousins' ( a marriage of related barrels LD 323 and 407) however, as mentioned previously, we have, for the first time, experimented with finishing. The We Are TWISTED Cousins' has spent 4 months in a100 l first fill Oloroso Cask . If the "nose" is anything to go by, we have produced a cracking whisky.
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.
