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.

Sullivans Cove French Oak Single Tawny Cask Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky retains full, creamy lingering flavours and is considered to be one of the best whiskies in the world.  To create this exceptional Single Malt Whisky, the Tasmanian Master Distiller hand selects the purest ingredients and highest quality French Oak ex-Australian fortified wine casks. The award-winning result is rich and creamy with hints of fruit cake and dark chocolate with a lingering finish. 2014 World's Best Whisky.

Brought to you by Tasmania, and the combined work of the folk at Sullivans Cove over the past 13.4 years."

Sullivans Cove Single Cask French Oak Whisky 700mL

Sullivans Cove Single Cask French Oak Whisky is hand-crafted to perfection in a copper pot still.  The whisky is then double distilled using Tasmanian barley and only the purest wilderness water from Tasmania's mountains and forests. Matured in hand selected French Oak Port casks and allowed to settle and clear naturally, this single malt retains full, creamy lingering flavours and in 2014 won the honour of being the Best Single Malt Whisky in the World. Each cask is bottled separately, yielding only around 450 bottles, making this a very rare item to own and enjoy. Only 516 bottles of the Award winning HH0525 cask were ever made, and more emphasis is placed on owning or tasting this cask than is warranted.  Bottles from casks made at close to the same time may also very well have won the World Whisky Award but it was only samples from cask HH0525 that were submitted to the judging panel.

Sullivans Cove Single Cask French Oak Whisky Tasting Notes and Awards
Deep gold, brass appearance. Plenty of cinnamon and clove at first before some honeyed cereals enter. Sways towards fruit and nut chocolate after time in the glass, while remaining slightly more restrained than the other Sullivan Cove whiskies.A light, soft entry follows through to a soft, round, semi sweet mid palate with lively spices and subtle notes of fruit and nut chocolate plus cinnamon on the finish. Excellent balance. Concludes with hints of cocoa, drying into the lengthy aftertaste with a trace of marzipan at the fade.
