Muscat Cask Finish Special Release
Introducing our Special Release, the Launceston Distillery Muscat cask finish at 55% abv.
Created in partnership with our friends on the Tamar River, Holm Oak Vineyards.
Each year we receive an allocation of French Oak barrels that Holm Oak have used to age their muscat fortified wine. We then refill them at Launceston Distillery to mature our single malt whisky. This particular single malt was aged for 2 years in small Apera casks, then finished in a Holm Oak muscat cask for another 14 months before going into bottle.
This 14 month finish brings another level of finesse to the single malt whisky with layers of toffee, Turkish delight and ripe apricots developing on the nose. This is then followed by hints of muscat, dried fruits and spice on the palate.
We are extremely fortunate to secure these barrels from Holm Oak Vineyards, the only winery in Tasmania producing a Muscat fortified wine.
$186 a bottle.
