Limeburners Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky (50ml)
A quintessentially Australian small batch single malt distilled with local ingredients. A mild whisky but with lots of subtle complexity. This one is best enjoyed with just a splash of water to bring out the flavours.
NOSE Light and breezy with plenty of fruit. Plums and peaches are prominent alongside sultanas and raisins which offer a subtle festive spiciness. There is a gentle underscoring of sweetness; mainly vanilla and butterscotch which follows through onto the palate.
PALATE The rich sweetness arrives early complimented by hints of nutmeg, coconut, and cinnamon. Like an old-fashioned Christmas cake, all dried fruit and icing sugar. The Australian sherry finish is in here too adding to the soft spiciness with just a hint of tannin.
FINISH Not as long as the palate might suggest and oilier than you might expect. The sweetness remains but the spiciness really comes out here with plenty of pepper and cinnamon.
