Whisky- 500 mL Bottles
The Launceston Distillery Rum Cask Finish
Bourbon cask matured single malt whisky that was then finished for an additional 9 months in a beautiful 50 litre rum cask created especially for us by Transwood Cooperage.
The single malt was then analysed at a number of different strengths by Chris before landing on 44.5% ABV. This ABV was the perfect point at which the rum influence sat perfectly on the palate.
This is the first rum cask release done by Launceston Distillery and this is a once off release. There will not be any more rum cask releases from Launceston Distillery for the next few years at least.
Price: $166 plus shipping.
Apera Cask Matured (H17-34)
This elegant whisky was matured in 2 ex-South Australian Apera casks (Cask 006 and 007) that were previously used to age apera fortified wine (Australian style sherry) for a minimum of 5 years and 10 months. These 2 casks were bought together and allowed to marry for 2 months before being bottled at 46%, our standard ABV strength.
This full flavoured whisky was double distilled and is non-chill filtered to retain depth of character.
500 ML bottles, 46% Alcohol by Volume.
Single Cask #005 Cask Strength, 5 yr Old- Tawny Cask Matured (H17-32) SOLD OUT
The Return of the great one. Unavailable since September 2021 the Cask Strength Tawny has returned with vengeance. This indulgent single malt whisky was matured for 5 years and 7 months (making this our oldest whisky ever) in one 100ltr American oak tawny cask,
This cask was identified as one that did everything right (only the second time ever) and it was picked by Chris as being good enough to be a single cask.
One drop of this on the lips and you will know you are tasting the pinnacle of Launceston Distillery single malt.
