Launceston Distillery, Special Edition Peated (500ml)
Special Edition Peated
Tasmanian Single Malt Whisky
We are proud to offer the Launceston Distillery ‘Peated Special Edition’ – Bourbon and Tawny Cask Matured, a pleasantly peated pour of potable perfection straight out of Hanger 17 – the home of the Launceston Distillery.
An exclusive bottling for The Single Malt Whisky Club – from peated malt aged in bourbon and tawny casks (at approx. 80:20 ratio) and bottled at 46%. It’s a delightfully complex whisky that balances the smoke/sweet ratio nicely.
Made from unpeated Tasmanian and peated Scottish barley. This peated Launceston has none of the tarry, asphalt or medicinal/iodine notes that are often associated with peat – more a mild sweet smokiness over a sweet and fruity base.
Colour: Midway between copper and rose-gold
Nose: Dusty antique furniture, sweet orange marmalade and a fresh, floral – almost minty – note.
Palate: Nicely coats the mouth with a light oiliness at first. A medium level of peaty-mustiness cuts through a sweet honeyed crumpet with a splash of vanilla and spice on the side.
Finish: A lengthy rollercoaster of smoky and sweet notes. Nice, long, warming and chewy!
