Launceston Distillery, Peated Single Malt (500ml)
Launceston Distillery, Peated Single Malt
46% - Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky
This smooth, smoky whisky was distilled using a mix of Tasmanian malt barley and richly peated Scottish malt.
Just like Angus (the distillery hound), it is Tasmanian made with Scottish bloodlines.
Using Scottish peated barley, which was brewed, fermented and distilled at Hangar 17, the distilled new make spirit was matured in small American Oak bourbon casks for 2 ½ years.
During the vatting process, some whisky which was matured in French Oak tawny casks was included.
Aroma: Delicate honeycomb, eucalypt, beeswax, nectarine, subtle peat
Mouthfeel: Viscous, well structured
Taste: Marzipan, stone fruit, bush honey, gentle warming peat, toasted muesli, buttered toast
Finish: Lingering earthiness
