Country to Coast Collab #2

48% alc/vol, available in 700ml bottles only and limited to 300 bottles.
In these strange days of isolation, Country to Coast is a collaboration
of two Australian distilleries. This whisky is a pairing of barrels. One
Apera cask filled with peated new make distilled and matured at
Black Gate Distillery in Mendooran NSW, the other a Tawny cask
filled with peated new make distilled and matured at the Fleurieu
Distillery in SA.
In late 2020 these two casks were brought together at the Fleurieu
Distillery. Here with diligence and respect to their individual
character they were carefully put through the process of being
blended, rested and adjusted to 48% alc/volume. After further resting, this beautifully integrated whisky was then bottled.
Tasting Notes
This limited edition peated whisky is yet another exceptional pairing of casks from two highly respected Australian mainland distilleries. The deep mahogany hue carries forward a nose of solid peat smoke upon a bed of raisins, spice and vanilla. It offers an inviting multilayer complexity of peat mixed with signature Apera and Tawny barrel characters. Immerse yourself in the wispy smoke over briny coastal iodine and sweet country infused malt and umami. This balance and integration mingles well through to the end, beckoning another sip to savour.Whether you are in the county or on the coast, or anywhere in between, this ground-breaking release is a celebration of coming together after unprecedented times as we all look forward to what 2021 brings.
Thanks to Gareth and Ang for these tasting notes :)
