Archie Rose, Single Malt Whisky (700ml)
Archie Rose Distillery,
Single Malt Whisky
46% ABV, Batch 6
The Archie Rose Single Malt Whisky has been matured predominantly in 100, 200 and 300-litre Australian apera (sherry) casks, complemented by a selection of ex-bourbon and Archie Rose’s own 36-month air-dried ex-rye casks, each coopered with a specific balance of both char and toast - with the latter being unusual in the realm of distilling where the lower heat and longer duration toasting process penetrates further into the oak of the cask and offers an entirely different level of complexity than casks that only feature a more traditional char.
The natural sweetness of these casks complements the savoury charisma of the spirit, revealing fresh herbs, shortbread biscuits, raisins, toffee and dark chocolate on the nose.
Meanwhile, the palate is luscious with well-integrated flavours of sticky date pudding and amaretto with a final note of espresso.
