We have been lucky enough to secure the entire 20l cask of this independent bottling produced by Shane and Karin at Tasmanian Whisky Selectors (AKA: Bogan Road Distillery).  Launceston Distillery new-make spirit was matured in a very special second-fill apera cask in the Bogan Road Distillery bond stores amongst the rolling hills of Quamby Brook, near Deloraine.

 

This whisky reminds me of childhood memories helping my grandmother make her signature recipe, the Scottish Dundee cake.  Think of a dense, sticky fruitcake filled with raisins and sultanas. Seville orange peel and ginger warm the palate and the savoury oiliness of scorched almonds provide depth and structure. 

 

Nose: Fruit toast, ruby grapefruit peel, brown sugar and comforting forest floor.

Palate: Spicy candied citrus peel on the front, butterscotch icecream and all things spicy fruit cake towards the back.

Finish: Sweet fruits mixed with savoury herbs.  Complex and intriguing.  Decadent, yet spirit-driven. The Launceston new-make spirit sings with its citrus and fruits and nashi pear for days.

 

With 39 bottles in total, one of which is already half-gone (whoops), this is a very special release which will be gone before we know it.  Purchase yours online by clicking the below link.  500ml.  55.2% ABV.
