Sullivans Cove French Oak Single Tawny Cask Tasmanian single malt whisky has become a legend in its own right, one of the most sought after whiskies in the world, and the bottle that put the Australian whisky industry on the map after winning World’s Best Single Malt at the World Whiskies Awards in 2014.

Aged in 300L French oak casks previously used to mature Australian tawny port-style fortified wine, this whisky has rich flavours of Christmas spice, chocolate, dried fruit and complex oak. As a single cask bottling, every tiny batch is different, expressing the unique characteristics of each barrel.

Aged for 9 years, 8 months, in a 300 litre, French oak ex-Tawny cask, TD0405 is a classic example of the Sullivans Cove French Oak ex-Tawny style. Bottled unflocked and unfiltered at 47.5% abv this cask produced a mere 477 bottles.

"A full-bodied, multi-dimensional and delicious single cask. Impressively layered and inspires thoughts of “how did all that flavour just come out of my small glass?â€?Caramelised meets creamy, sweet meets spiced, and dark meets bright. TD0405 breaks the confines of the tasting wheel and proudly says “I bet you didn’t expect that.â€?You're welcome!" -Miranda Lidgerwood, Sensory and Marketing

Nose: From the first nose, TD0405 boasts an incredible depth, full of dark and rich delights. Entry brings notes of Canelés - a small French pastry flavoured with rum and vanilla with a soft and tender custard centre and a dark, thick caramelized crust - coffee toffee and a side of sweet, spiced oak char and antique furniture (hello French oak!). As the nose opens further it moves between dark, spiced fruit pastries and tropical fruits with a creamy, white chocolate mousse side. Nougat, maple, lolly snakes and blood orange amaro are all there too.

Palate: For all the French oak ex-Tawny driven depth and darkness the nose provided, the transition to the palate is unexpectedly soft and gentle. With a pause and a pop of tropical fruit, we are reminded who is in control here, and it isn’t the oak. Sullivans Cove spirit arrives with passionfruit, guava and candied mandarin peel, stepping onto a red carpet of French oak-derived tannins and gentle swells of spice, providing a medley of tart berries, lemon, and juicy fruit gum. As the palate progresses, notes of oak, spirit, and Tawny move through one another creating an exquisite interplay of flavours; toasty tobacco, plum sauce and blackened yakitori, paprika honey roasted cashews, and freeze-dried strawberries coated in white chocolate.

Finish: A truly layered and delightful finish that allows each component a moment in centre stage. French oak ex-Tawny leads the way with dates in dark chocolate, almond butter and Madeira wine, all underpinned by an aromatic and savoury depth of incense and spiced ginger tea. With incredible length and restraint, a delightful and unexpected spirit-derived note of waxy peach candies and lemon drizzle cake emerges and lingers long after the oak and pre-fill have drifted away.
