The 100th batch of Sullivans Coveâ€™s Double Cask single malt whisky, released to help kick off the world famous distilleryâ€™s 25th anniversary.
A limited edition of the award winning, but now rare, stable expression, this has been bottled at 47.4% with just 1,238 bottles in the release. Strictly a 10-year-old, this has whisky as old as 18 years in the mix. Available through the distillery only, we have been lucky enough to secure a very small allocation.
Production Manager Heather Tillott says of the release, â€œFor this batch we've married several 18-year-old American oak ex-bourbon casks with two eleven-year-old French oak ex-tawny casks. The result is a whisky of incredible depth and texture due to the considerable age of the American oak casks, lifted by the bright sweetness of the French oak. This unique whisky is a piece of Sullivans Cove history never to be repeated.â€
Batch DC100 contains whisky from HH0121, HH0223, HH0318, HH0483, HH0357, HH0338, TD0271, TD0221.
The youngest whisky was filled 17 April 2008 and this expression was decanted 10 January, 2019.
Comes packaging in limited edition wooden box.
Nose: Lots of banana cream pie,Â baked peaches, dried apple and ripe pineapples,Â along with vanilla bean, bay leaf, sweet malt, fine leather and an elegant floral note.Â
Palate: Rich, sweet fruit fills the palate. Toffee apples, candied citrus peel and ripe plums mingle with the honey-driven mid palate, while dark chocolate and beeswax bring an earthy element to the mix, as well a touch of bright eucalyptus and mint. Beautiful smooth texture.Â
Finish: The bright tropical fruits are followed by the earthier notes of malt grain, cocoa, mixed nuts and vanilla. A luscious, mouth-coatingÂ texture drives the finish on to Nana's scones fresh from the over with jam and thick cream.Â
