Launceston Distillery Single Malt Tawny Cask
September’s whisky comes from our friendly neighbours across the Bass Strait. The first distillery in over 170 years to open in the city after which it is named, the Launceston Distillery Single Malt Tawny Cask [$155, 46%, 500ml] is one of 4 expressions that comprise their lineup of Tasmanian single malts. Aged in ex-tawny French oak, it’s a whisky that shows incredible colour and maturity for its age, exhibiting a bold, rich body with sultry toasted wood and depth that could be considered abyssal. Stewed fruits and winter spice peek their heads, giving way to a lengthy finish It’s a whisky that nobody would ever accuse of being shy.
