Launceston Distillery Apera Cask Matured Single Malt Australian Whisky (500ml)

$175.00 Bottle
  • ABV 46%

Based at Launceston Airport’s Hangar 17, this new venture is the talk of the town. Described as "a distillery with only bosses", it was set up in 2015 by three chemists and two architects. All five have day jobs, so the group isn’t desperate for a quick return, rather they’re just looking to make and market Tasmania’s best whisky. The 1930s aircraft hanger housing the equipment is said to be the state’s oldest commercial aviation building.

Two "first edition / first release" expressions are now available, the Apera had an outturn of 530 bottles, and the Tawny just under 600. Both should be on collector's radars.

Tasting note: Amber gold. Floral soft, high purity malt in the opening whiffs giving way to dried fruits, then riper orchard fruit notes, cocoa and beeswax. Later fruit’n’nut dark chocolate. Good sherry input with a touch of rose wax or Turkish Delight (?) through the finish. Concludes raisiny, fresh and woody, with oak shavings dominating the aftertaste. Some unusual notes not previously encountered in Australian whisky. Youthful but quite a ride for a first release! 46% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered. Very limited allocations.
