Launceston Distillery Bourbon Cask Matured Single Malt Australian Whisky (500ml) - 46%

Tasmania, AUSTRALIA
$150. 00 Bottle
$1800.00 Dozen
ABV: 46%

Drawing from twelve small American oak casks, this Bourbon influenced expression is a light to medium-bodied and engaging whisky that speaks of careful cask management and selection. The biscuity malt has achieved a nice balance with the sweet oak notes and a faintly fruity edge comes through suggesting stewed pears and banana bread. It's not complex, but it's pure, already well integrated and full of a character reminiscent of Speysiders twice its age, drawing comparisons with the likes of Cardhu or Royal Brackla. Supervised by distiller, Chris Condon, from grain to bottle everything happens under the roof of Hangar 17, neighbouring Launceston Airport. Batch H17-14 tasted. Non chill filtered. 46% Alc./Vol.
