A single cask whisky from Tasmaniaâ€™s Redlands distillery, bottled by Tasmanian Independent Bottlers.
The third release from Redlands by TIB, cask TIB RD 002 was, similarly to Release 1, matured in an ex-muscat cask. Relands have a sweet, precise new make and the muscat casks are bringing out a beautiful sweet spring fruitiness in the whiskies.
Originally launched as a paddock-to-bottle distillery, Redlands is now located at the historic Dysart House, in Kempton. They have released a number of official expressions to the Tasmanian market, but there has not been enough volume for the mainland. The few that have made it to the other states in personal luggage have been well received â€“ the distilleryâ€™s sweet new make spirit working well with big, sweet wine casks.
Tasmanian Independent Bottlers is a new venture, driven by the team behind Heartwood â€“ Australiaâ€™s best known indie bottler. Casting their net beyond the home state, TIB will look to bottle accessible single malts and spirits from across Australia. Avoiding the natural cask strength tendencies of Heartwood (which have topped 70% in the past), TIB releases will be offered between 46% and 50% ABV.
