Archie Rose Single Malt Australian Whisky

The Single Malt Whisky from Archie Rose is crafted to highlight six malts, as opposed to the traditional one or two, providing a richer and more expressive flavour, full of distinct regional character. Matured predominantly in toasted and charred Australian apera casks, ex-bourbon and Archie Rose’s own 36 month air-dried ex-rye casks.
Australian Apera is a fortified wine similar to Spanish sherry. It's used to season American or French Oak casks, offering a flavour profile that's usually made up of nutty and dried fruit notes like figs and prunes.

    Nose:     Immediately offers sun-dried apricots, preserved peaches and handmade honeycomb, laced with sultanas. A second pass yields, muesli, roasted nuts and chalk. The background teases lurking cacao and dark chocolate.

    Taste:    A soft entry and syrupy texture delivers an unctuous mouthfeel. The sweetness of sultanas is prominent, yet balanced by dryness delivered from the malt. This makes way for flavours of amaretto and espresso, building the intensity to a crescendo.

    Finish:    Evolving with a satisfying dryness with a whisper of smoke.
