McLaren Vale Distillery Bloodstone Series 1 Chapter 2 Maxwell Fortified Mead Cask
350ml 63.50%
  Ret
$850.00
   
There have been some quite big expectations with this new distillery in SA's McLaren Vale wine region. Me thinks that theor good fortune was to have Mr Jock Harvey on board as a supporter, as his access to some highly rare and highly flavoured wine casks has certainly brought the world's attention to this new venture. And I have to say, the sample I've tried there's plenty of big flavours but the underlying spirit is very refined. Note the size of the bottle!! Pic available upon request.

All the words are from Smiths, "It was filled into 11 hogshead on the 15th March 2000. The eleven hogshead casks used for maturation of the 2000 vintage comprised; 4 old Sherry, 1 new American oak, nine 3 year old French oak ex white wine, one 5 year old American and one old sherry cask. After 3 stand out single cask releases, both as 11 year olds, weíve blended together the whisky from 3 French oak casks and the whisky from the sole American oak cask, to release as a 12 year old, bottled at a strength 43% TASTING NOTES Colour: Deep amber, all naturally leached from the oak cask (No caramel was added prior to bottling) Aroma: Full, sweet and fruity featuring with zesty spirit and pronounced oak elements of vanilla, caramel and roasted nuts, with nuances of toasted toffee, and raisin fruits. Palate: Lively spirit flavours with underlying cedar oil, toffee and nutty flavours derived from the oak. The texture is tight and zesty in the middle, merging into a smooth, creamy finish, with hints of dried figs, tealeaf and leather lingering on the aftertaste.

Southern Coast Distillers 2007 5yo Batch 006 Single Malt Whisky
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$700.00
   
CLOSED DISTILLERY Just been bottled (May 2012) and after 6 different bottlings, the South Coast Distillers can now boast a definite house style...rich fruit cake. The spirit quality is excellent as it is both rich, sweet and clean, and the oak handling is superb. Some rough tasting notes from yours truly: Big lift of violet crumble bars, honeycombe, spicy oak on the nose. The palate is fat, rich but just a tad short, plenty of creamy malt and vanilla oak. The finish is sweet and long lasting, plenty of lingering spiced honey. . Official notes, "Nose: Fruity and nutty; muscovado sugar and sugared peanuts with fresh cut apricots and mandarin. Initially has rum/rockmelon/scorched paper note but deepens into briny walnuts and white oak along with darker fruits; dried apricots. Palate: rum soaked fruit early then chestnuts and smoked almonds kick in along with wine and brine; where the hell does that saltiness come from and the scorched peanuts and the warm walnut skin finish? Finish: Buttery, orange peel, charred/roasted nuts, some wood tannins and furry bitters. Comment: even tastes slightly peated; slightly furry. Just keeps getting better in the glass. Sure as hell isnít scotch Ė itís better!"

This could be for the last time. A 7 year old, full French oak single malt from the now fabled Southern Coast Distillers. And this one is a belter. From its deep brooding colour to its massive palate and intensive flavour. This dram just sings. And as with all of Ian & Vic's drams, complexity and balance match perfectly with its rich maltiness and its peppery oak. Here are my rough notes, "Big barley sugar, stewed fruits, black pepper, big round full palate, layers of golden syrup/dark honey. dry oak finish, dried spice, cumquats." Just love ya work lads!

 
Southern Coast Distillers Single Malt Whisky Batch 002
700ml 46.00%
  Ret
$900.00
   
This brand new Aussie whisky from Adelaide, certainly made an impact when it was judged at the 2010 MWSoA whisky competition. Under the direction of the affable and knowledgeable Mr Ian Schmidt, this young whisky certainly belies it's age. First filled into cask #11 in September 2006 it was bottled in time to enter the MWSOA Malt Whisky Awards in 2010 where it was awarded a silver medal (83pts) and the Pourersí Prize. Unfortunately due to the spillage when it lost a hoop there were only ever 97 bottles filled. I'll leave to Ian to explain, "Nose: mint, pine needles, dried rosemary, floor polish, clean lifted alcohols with toffee/praline/chocolate underneath, clean leaf litter, butter roasted nuts. The longer it sits, the flatter and more earthy and nutty it gets, but remains solid: nutty with lots of chocolate, dried fruit and varnish. Palate: sherry & chocolate, rich and slightly oily, mint toffee and more varnish, sour plums, some hints of woodsmoke, bitter herbs. Finish: mint and drying wood, some bitterness Ė alcohol, wood and mint toffee with nuts, a bitter chocolate reprise; some leather. Balance: Thereís a nice continuity through the nose and palate and early into the finish, but the very end of the finish lets it down." Pic indicative only.

It is just so pleasing to see Mr Ian and Mr Vic, ex Southern Coast Distillers, back in business. Bravo lads!! And their new Inquity will not dissapoint. Even as a 2yo!! The sad thing is, that their whiskies are just so rare at present. In their words, "Full and rich mouthfeel, herbs and honey, redcurrant jelly, then woody (pencil shavings) and Dutch Licorice. FINISH: Dry, some toffee, herbal honey and bitters. Some coffee. Gets a little papery and woody. The nose is interesting and progressive. COMMENT: Every bit as good as Batch No. 001, same age, same oak regime, just different"

From Ian & Vic, "The malt was smoked using peat from the Parawa area south of Adelaide and classic South Australian mallee wood. This whisky is a winter warmer, but it is definitely at its best after being warmed in the hand. Don't make the mistake of drinking it cold or on ice."

$200.00
   
New for July 2017. And best of all, it's heavily peated. Yep, an Aussie whisky has finally cracked the big smoke league. In Ian Schmidt's words, "Palate: Rich, rounded, smoky then slightly minty, fruity and oily, all gently wood smoked. Comment: The richness is typical and the smoke isnít obvious in the nose, yet builds to show up most in the tail of the palate and in the finish as distant campfire smoke. " Pic indicative only.

Bains 5yo Cape Mountain South African Single Grain Whisky
750ml 43.00%

$115.00
   
Well this is a first for me! It comes from the James Sedgwick Distillery, part of the Distell group (famous for Amarula Cream and now owners of Burns Stewart) in South Africa. While founded in 1886, it has only been making whisky since 1990. This single grain, coming off a column still, has certainly attracted some worldwide attention. Itís been called lively & attractive, while being loaded up with toffee and vanillin oak. Others have called it unusual but wonderful. World Whisky Awards Best Grain Whisky 2013.

The name says it all! In Cadenhead's words, "A glorious balance of sweetness and spice, honeycomb and fruit loaf. This dram is so elegant it's a perfect dram from the seasoned drinker to the beginner," From Dave Broom, "Thick and palate-hugging, with just enough drying oak on the sides. It does need water though, which smooths things out considerably, allowing fudge and condensed milk (and sealing wax) to come through. 7.8pts."

Aaaah! The joys of a well aged grain whisky. It's not for veryone, but once you have tasted their superb complexity...you'll be hooked. From Cadenhead's tasters, "Nose Lots of toffee, melted butter, white chocolate and hints of ginger. Palate Thick and chewy vanilla ice cream, some biscuity notes and lots of caramel notes.
