Sullivans Cove Double Cask Barrel DC100 Single Malt Australian Whisky (700ml)
Note: Box has come from a private collection and as such has some minor creasing/scuffing/scratches/handling marks. Actual product pictured.
In commemeration of their 25th Anniversary and the 100th release of the Double Cask range, Sullivans Cove have put together the DC100 using some of their oldest casks. Well presented in a handmade oak box, definitely one for collectors.
The latest releases from this distillery (established in 1994) mark a welcome departure from many previous expressions that were frequently sabotaged by hessian bag, burnt rubber and/or sulphur-like notes. All three bottlings (Double Wood, American Oak Single Cask and French Oak Single Cask) are clean, complex and come highly recommended. The Double Wood is two parts - one matured in a combination of French Oak (11 years), the other matured for 11 years in American Oak. It offers a wonderfully fruity whisky experience, particularly on the nose which finds comparison with Nant's Unpeated or Aberfeldy's 12 year old.
