Sullivans Cove 2008 Single Cask TD0290 Single Malt Whisky

In 1994, on an island at the far end of the world, a distillery was born from humble beginnings. Located in Hobart, Tasmania, Sullivans Cove is bringing a distinctly Tasmanian twist to a whisky craft, shaped by centuries of practice. Sullivans Cove provides obsessively and slowly handcrafting single cask whisky, with no two batches the same. Each, an opportunity for exploration, genuinely rare whisky which can’t be rushed, and which can never be replicated.

This Single Cask of exceptional Tasmanian Single Malt was matured in 300L French oak cask previously used to mature Australian tawny port-style fortified wine. One of 433 bottles released. It was distilled in June 2008 and bottled in April 2021.

    Nose:    Melted dark chocolate and red wine gums open up a big fruity nose. Hints of anise, white pepper and coconut.

    Taste:    Jelly babies and a little more white pepper dominate the palate entry with cinnamon and a lick of fresh cut grass developing.

    Finish:    The finish is swift but substantial with fruitcake notes.

Note: Product has come from a private collection, minor markings are inevitable and collectors should have reasonable expectations in this regard.
