Description

Sullivans Cove French Oak Cask HH525 was voted the World’s Best Single Malt Whisky at the 2014 World Whisky Awards ­– the first time a whisky from somewhere other than Scotland or Japan has been awarded this honour.

This single cask expression varies from 12 to 14 years in age and is a big, fat, chewy whisky full of rich toffee and molasses notes. You could almost be forgiven for mistaking it for Demerara rum on first taste!

Tasting Notes

Nose: Full rich dark chocolate with cinnamon, orange peel, hazelnut and licorice mint.
Palate: Rich and sweet front palate with flavours of chocolate, pepper, toffee and fruit cake.
Finish: Long lingering finish of dried dark fruit and dark chocolate.

They only created about a very limited bottling of this stuff! It was so popular it has became incredibly scarce very quickly.
