Sullivans Cove TD0020 18 Year Old Single Cask 2005

Old & Rare American Oak Second Fill Single Cask TD0020 was filled in February 2005 and decanted in April 2023, for a maturation of 18 years and 2 months. After such a long maturation, this 200-litre American oak cask, previously used to mature an older batch of Sullivans Cove single malt, yielded only 178 bottles at 47.6% ABV.
TD0020 captivates with its intricate depth and velvety texture.

    Nose:    Enticing aromas of caramelized orange, apricot roll-ups, and sweet almond butter greet the senses. A touch of pleasant warmth emerges with subtle notes of orange blossom and hints of soy candles. The classic Sullivans Cove spirit notes emerge with warm tropical fruits and whispers of waxy peach.

    Taste:    The texture is luxurious, with sweet pops of fondant icing and apricots. Marzipan dances on the palate, followed by the nutty richness of Brazil nut and pecan. Subtle nuances of biscotti dipped in milky tea emerge, with hints of linseed oil adding complexity.

    Finish:   The robust finish culminates as the delicate sweetness of pastry puffs and dried cacao intertwine with the comforting warmth of hot chocolate and toasted apricots. There is a wonderful creamy texture here that lingers on the palate, a pure delight.
