Roasted malt | Vanilla cream | Hint of youth


Malty | Summer berries | Vanilla | Light spice | Soft & sweet


Brown sugar | Berries | Dry | Gentle | Lingering sweetness


Originating from Melbourne, Australia, this two grain whiskey is aged in Australian red wine barrels. The blend of the wheat and malted barley whiskeys results in a flavor profile that is gentle, sweet, and well rounded despite showing obvious signs of youth. However this youth could be eliminated with a little more time in the barrel. The red wine barrels, which are said to be lightly charred or quickly blasted with steam before use, impart subtle but noticeable influence to the resulting whiskey.
