Matured solely in Australian red wine barrels, this single malt represents a unique integration of our local barley, climate and innovative approach to producing whisky.
Balanced aromas of raisins, bananas and a touch of balsamic lead to clove, toffee and nougat. The palate welcomes the arrival of red berries, hints of cinnamon and a variety of savoury and spice driven secondary notes. A long, dry and tannic finish guides a strong linear reach through the palate, balancing a generous roundness and oiliness of the spirit.
700ml, 41% ABV
A whiskey that dazzles the senses

An incredible and uniquely Australian whiskey that dazzles the senses. I'm not qualified to give a professional opinion but, to my taste, it is not as harsh as the Scotch and not as smooth as the Irish. And it beats them all for richness, depth and complexity. I would have passed it by on the strength of the label, but the guy at the bottle shop assured me I would be impressed. He was right, and I am drinking this stuff much too fast.
A surprising smoothness

This whiskey provided a full bodied taste with the subtle smoothness. Warming and pleasant, the aromas rolled over the tongue to provide a full experience to the senses.
