    $1679.88 Dozen
    ABV: 49.3%
    Tasting note: Racked in March 2021 as an eight year old, WHA's eighth single barrel release, and their fourth from the multi-award winning Barton 1792 distillery presents a deep topaz / amber colour with lots of wood spice before oily rye and a soothing, cool mint note complimenting the white pepper lift. 3-4 minutes in the glass draws out dried banana, caramel fudge and deep vanillas. Big, chewy and savoury with the sugars reigned in, a balance of grain and oak is achieved - the two reverberate off one another right through to the aftertaste. Mint-laced rye peaks at the finish alongside hints of banana bread, fresh oak, bitter chocolate and tingling spices. Overall, a peppery, slightly drier expression making for an appealing alternative to sweeter Bourbons. (Although not stated on the label, this is barrel #5941, otherwise identifiable by the distillation and bottling dates). 192 bottles for Australia only. 49.3% Alc./Vol.
