Sullivans Cove Single Port Cask HH0253 Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (700ml)

$195.00 Bottle
  • ABV 60%

Also known as 'The Tasmanian Distillery', Sullivan's Cove has had a short but eventful history. It was established in 1994 at Sullivan's Cove, the site of the first British settlement of Hobart. In November 2003, after a two year halt in production, the barreled whisky, still and other distillery equipment was bought and moved to Cambridge on the outskirts of the city. The Tasmania Distillery name was re-registered and the 1860's design Alembic Charentais copper pot still put back in production yielding up to 120 casks of whisky per year.

This expression was entirely matured in 300 Litre ex-Australian port casks from Mcwilliams, with previous contents in storage for 20 to 30 years.

Tasting note (Barrel HH0554 Tasted): Deep gold colour with pale straw hue. Dusty hessian bag at first on the nose. The rich malt is wrapped in fruit and nut chocolate with some spicy stewed plum and cinnamon notes too, however, there’s a rubbery note creeping in between which gets more apparent as the whisky sits in the glass. The palate entry is at first thick, soft and sweet then supernovas into a stupendous dark fruit, honey and nut-chocolate power wave. Prickly and somewhat hot, a burnt rubber note re emerges on the back palate. Drying tannins kick into balance, followed by a liquorice, spice fade. The dry rubberiness lingers long after the finish reminding you of what could have been almost a classic. Nevertheless, some may find this appealing. 60% Alc./Vol.
