The Southern Coast Distilling company was formed in May 2004 by three friends and their partners as a vehicle to build a South Australian Single Malt Distillery that will form a lasting legacy. The actual distilling first took place in January 2005 utilising the small 80 litre still built by the proprietors and named 'Monty' because it looked a bit like the cartoon character Monty Burns. They filled their first 50 litre cask from Tasmania in April 2005. Encouraged by their small success, "We realised that we could make passable spirit and that our worst case scenario of having large quantities of whisky to drink in our retirement if the endeavour failed was probably behind us. We immediately set about building a 600l still called Homer. Homer was commissioned on the 27th of June 2005 and charged with a wash of molasses to make rum the same day."
To date, all the company’s activities have been carried out during spare time and funded, effectively with pocket money.
Filled into a re-made and re-furbished sherry cask made from American oak in October 2008 this cask was bottled in April 2011 just in time for the 2011 MWSoA Malt Whisky Awards where it won a silver medal and the prize for best Australian Malt. 173 bottles produced.
Tasting note: [Batch 003 tasted] Pale gold colour. A ‘purer’ whisky nose with less overt cask influence than the previous batch; moderate scents of waxy malt emerge alongside sweet dried fruits and subtle herbal notes that add freshness. Soft silky entry builds in the mouth with a burst of sweet malt that’s like toffee apple at mid palate, but avoids being overly sweet. Excellent balance as the palate turns dry with a honey and toast finish. A trace of sulphur perhaps, but forgivable. Aftertaste is faintly minty at first followed by subtle notes of dried fruit and honey. Quite Bourbonesque is ways, with a touch of elegance. Nicely done! 46% Alc./Vol.
